    WHERE TO BUYAMERICANGASOLINE. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO KNOW. READ ON.Gas rationing in the 70's worked even though we grumbled about it. It might even have been good for us!Are you aware that the Saudis are boycotting American products? In addition, they are gouging us on oil prices. Shouldn't we return the favor?
    Can't we take control of our own destiny and let these giant oil importers know who REALLY generates their profits, their livings? How about leaving American Dollars in America and reduce the import/export deficit?
    An appealing remedy might be to boycott their GAS. Every time you fill up your car you can avoid putting more money into the coffers of Saudi Arabia. Just purchase gas from companies that don't import their oil from the Saudis.
    Nothing is more frustrating than the feeling that every time I fill up my tank, I'm sending my money to people who I get the impression want me, my family and my friends dead. The following gas companies import Middle Eastern oil:
    Shell..................................... 205,742,000 barrelsChevron/Texaco................... 144,332,000 barrelsExxon /Mobil....................... 130,082,000 barrelsMarathon/Speedway.......... 117,740,000 barrelsAmoco................................. 62,231,000 barrels
    And CITGO oil is imported from Venezuela who’s Dictator Hugo Chavez hates America and openly avows our economic destruction! (We pay Chavez's regime nearly $10 Billion per year in oil revenues!)The U.S. Currently imports 5,517,000 barrels of crude oil per day from OPEC. If you do the math at $100 per barrel, that's over $550 million PER DAY ($200 BILLION per year!) handed over to OPEC, many of whose members are our confirmed enemies!!!!! It won't stop here - oil prices could go to $200 a barrel or higher if we keep buying their product.Here are some large companies that do not import Middle Eastern oil:Sunoco.........................0 barrels
    Conoco.........................0 barrels
    Sinclair.........................0 barrels
    BP/Phillips...................0 barrels
    Hess.............................0 barrels
    ARC0............................0 barrels
    Maverick......................0 barrels
    Flying J.........................0 barrelsValero..........................0 barrels
    Murphy Oil USA *.........0 barrels
    *Sold at Wal-Mart , gas is from South Arkansas and fully USA owned and produced.
    *Not only that but they give scholarships to all children in their town who finish high school and are legal US citizens.


    All of this information is available from the U.S. Department of Energy and each company is required to state where they get their oil and how much they are importing.

    you will never be able to just buy oil produce in the US. the US produces 5-6 million barrels a day we use around 16-19 million barrels a day. The most oil the US ever produced was in 1970 around 10 million barrels a day and has dropped ever sense.
