WHERE TO BUY YOUR USA-GAS, THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO KNOW. READ ON--
Every time you fill up the car, you can avoid putting more money into the coffers of Saudi Arabia Just buy from gas companies that don't import their oil from the Saudis.
These companies import Middle Eastern oil:
Exxon /Mobil...............130,082,000 barrels
Citgo Gas comes from South America, from a Dictator who hates Americans.
Here are some large companies that DO NOT import Middle Eastern oil:
Also: Pilot, Flying J, Love's, RaceTrac, Valero.
All of this information is available from the Department of Energy and each is required to state where they get their oil and how much they are importing.
Glad to hear about Valero...I always get my gas there. Thanks for the info!
Do you have time to respond to this? I have chores to do.
This is excellent information. I am going to go out of my way to use this list. If it could be widely disseminated, it could have a fantastic impact on the effect of petrodollars on the terrorist economy.
Kudos to you!
Usually buy from a Conoco station. Only use Flying J on our annual trek to ST. Louis.
Oh. By the way, what about the Russkie gas stations? Yukos or whatever?
AMOCO was bought by BP about 10 years ago.
I doubt this info is up to date or valid!
Thanks for the info! I’ll fill my gas guzzling Infiniti QX56 at Sunoco from now on.
I guess I know where I am going to get my gas from now on
What about Giant Eagle’s Get-Go or Kroger’s or Meijer’s?
Who does Tetco and Safeway buy their gas from?
It does not matter whether you buy your gas from companies that import from the Middle East.
Oil is a *commodity* and if the US buys more from non Middle Eastern sources, then others will have to buy more from the Middle East since the remaining available supply from non Middle East sources will be less. In the worst case, oil suppliers from various regions will sell to each other if there is an imbalance, or rely on brokers to transfer ownership of the oil.
I always buy Conoco. This is good to hear. Thanks.
It doesn't really matter who you buy it from... your purchase affects the market price, period.
What you are recommending is like saying make sure you dip your bucket in a certain part of the ocean because we want to affect the level in a certain place.
Sounds like another internet hoax, like the don’t buy gas on Tuesday from Exxon/Mobil email that goes around every now & then
Maybe it’s just a “feel good” for me. But I’d rather give my money to a company that imports ME oil as a last resort, instead of a regular practice.
I’m with you.......even own the stock! Gotta start being a lead foot, so I can increase the cash flow a little, I guess! Damn Jeep only goes so fast!
Be loyal to your inner economic man . Buy where your product of choice is the least expensive . Trust the market .
That makes some sense NMR. I really wish I could use the other gasolines but the problem I have is that both of my cars do not run good at all unless I put Chevron or Shell/Texaco gas in them. My van sputters and runs rough when I fill up at other stations and my Honda goes through oil like water through a sieve if I use other stations to full up. Now, my daughters older Honda will run the same on any gas she puts in.
I did not believe it myself until I switched back and forth and what it just further proved my experience.
Down here in San Diego I have never heard of any of the companies that do not import EXCEPT Arco! Never driven past any of the others.
Mobil and Exon are the ones on every other block!
Just because it feels good doesn't mean it's not retarded.
I use our local Marathon dealer, but I also support our local small bussiness in my town! There is only 1 gas station in our town, so I go there. I try to keep my money in local stores & support my local ecnomy!
I realize that you are not necessarily capable of mentioning every single brand of gas station, but up here in Western PA, Kwik Fill (mostly a regional producer I think) states proudly on it’s pumps that it produces 100% North American Crude Oil. :-)
Right you are.
If it’s for sale, someone’s gonna buy it.
Nice reply. Try some content next time.
Hmmm. Nice to know that I’ve not been buying my fuel from any of the companies who import from the Middle East for years. Thanks for the post.
That's not the half of it. I worked for a Texaco jobber back in the 80's. Flying-J and Burns Brothers (and other large "truck stops" now known as "travel centers") buy non-branded fuel at whoever is cheapest at the time.
IOW, Flying-J pulled loads out of Tosco, ARCO, Texaco, Chevron - whoever.
At the same time the Texaco Portland loading terminal would regularly run out of unleaded or diesel and would get a "push" down the pipeline from ARCO or Tosco or Shell or wherever. Sometimes it'd come from a barge with no brand name at all.
General public are dupes and enjoy being stupid, IMO.
I wanna boycott all the ones that import from France!
We have refineries in our area and you are correct. EVERY truck with a different brand name on it runs through the refinery and fills its tanks. Hubby used to know the manager over there. He said the only difference is the computer controlled additives that are added according to company name, Texaco, Shell, etc.
Who does Costco buy their gas from?
Hate to say it but this stuff gets STALE aka old
You mean ARCO, I believe, not Amoco. Though it may be valid for Amoco as well.
If you actually know someone who works in local/regional distribution, ask them what REALLY goes on.
This stuff is a pack of lies.
Multiple brands are delivered from the same terminals in the same tankers. The only difference (in some cases) is that the drivers pour different additives for the branded stuff.
Pack of lies...
Hell, the distributor my wife works for owns one branded and one un-branded station literally across the corner from each other. Same tanker delivers to both.
Pack of lies...
Peet (some day I’ll tell you how I *really* feel)
Too late, they started importing from the ME as well.
this is just stupid ...
#1 oil is fungible
#2 the downstreamers don’t buy crude from ANYWHERE, they buy refined products from midstreamers - who can mix crudes from multiple sources in any given depot
All the companies fill up at the same refineries, it is the additives added that make the difference.
Is this your way of forwarding the email to 10 of your friends to avoid bad luck? Are you sitting around waiting for the phone call from that “special someone” the email promised in exchange for forwarding it?
I read somewhere that a gas station up north, I think in Missouri, switched from Citgo to Marathon because he lost too much business for supporting Chavez, so it must work at some level...that is if we’re willing to stop into these gas stations and let them know we won’t be filling up with them because of where they get their gas/oil. Now if we can get the gas station owner in Missouri “enlightened about Marathon that should help there also.
Here’s the DOE list of
petroleum companies and
I read it on the Internet, it must be true!!!!!
Citgo doesn’t import any Arab oil either.
How ‘bout that. Not a one of the alleged no-ME-importers is in Houston.
Maybe Googling “bp amoco” would be a start.
