Introducing The Great American Oil Embargo...
Every time you fill up the car, you can avoid putting more money into the coffers of the Middle East. Just buy from gas companies that don't import their oil from the Middle East.
Nothing is more frustrating to me than the feeling that every time I fill-up the tank, I am sending my money to people who are trying to kill me, my family and my friends. I thought it might be interesting for you to know which oil companies are the best to buy gas from.
Major companies that import Middle Eastern oil (for the period 09/1/00-08/31/01):
Shell . . . . . . . . . . . 205,742,000 barrels
Chevron/Texaco . . . 144,332,000 barrels
Exxon/Mobil . . . ... . 130,082,000 barrels
Marathon . . . . . . . . 117,740,000 barrels
Amoco . . . . . . . . . . .62,231,000 barrels
If you do the math at $30/barrel, these imports amount to over $19 BILLION!
Here are some large companies that do not import Middle Eastern oil:
Citgo . . . . . . . 0 barrels
Sunoco . . . . . .0 barrels
Conoco . . . . . 0 barrels
Sinclair . . . . . 0 barrels
BP/Phillips . . . 0 barrels
All of this information is available from the Department of Energy and can be easily documented. Refineries located in the U.S. are required to state where they get their oil and how much they are importing. They report on a monthly basis.
