This was posted on the TAU forums by TAU|PorkyPine, and me being a daily driver and an american, it really hit home.


We CAN buy gasoline that's not from Middle East. Why didn't George W. think of this? Gas rationing in the 80's worked even though we grumbled about it. It might even be good for us!
The Saudis are boycotting American goods. We should return the favor. An interesting thought is to boycott their GAS. 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.
Nothing is more frustrating 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 and which major companies import Middle Eastern oil (for the period 9/1/00 - 8/31/01):
Shell............................205,742,000 barrels
Chevron/Texaco.........144,332,000 barrels
Exxon /Mobil................130,082,000 barrels
Marathon/Speedway...117,740,000 barrels
Amoco.........................62,231,000 barrels

If you do the math at $30/barrel, these imports amount
to over $18 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
Hess...................0 barrels

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. They report on a monthly basis. Keep this list in your car; share it with friends. Stop paying for terrorism.............
But to have an impact, we need to reach literally millions of gas buyers. It's really simple to do!! Now, don't wimp out at this point...keep reading and I'll explain how simple it is to reach millions of people!!
I'm sending this note to about thirty people. If each of you send it to at least ten more (30 x 10 = 300)... and those 300 send it to at least ten more (300 x 10 = 3,000)..... and so on, by the time the message reaches the sixth
generation of people, we will have reached over THREE MILLION consumers! If those three million get excited and pass this on to ten friends each, then 30 million people will have been contacted! If it goes one level further, you guessed it..... THREE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE!!! Again, all you have to do is send this to 10 people. How much would all that take? If each of us
sends this e-mail out to ten more people within one day all 300 MILLION people could conceivably be contacted within the next eight days!

-end quote

Now I personally know some car junkies with ricers and stuff that only buy say Chevron gas. If you're one of those guys or know one of these guys and read this, just F that stuff for a while guys if you buy their gas, you really are supporting our enemy. They arent buying our products, so why should we support their economy?

Post this on other forums that you guys read, e-mail to your lists, this really can work.
Albert Einstein was once asked: "What weapons will be used in World War 3?"
He replied: "I don't know. But I do know that the fourth World War will be fought with stones."

interesting... but dude.. chain letters get trashed...

posting on other forums help, and telling those around you might spread "the word", but honestly... who answers/continues chain letters?

Bad luck? Hah, I've always walked with this pronounced limp, been broke, had no life, no one loves me.... :shock:

Waita sec, I think I just proved myself wrong...

Again, this IS interesting though....funny...I usually buy my gas from BP anyway...just didn't know I wasn't helping those turban terrorists... :lol:

Got that a month or so ago in a mass-forwarded email. Normally I just delete those things but my mother had removed the "FW:" from the subject and I opened the dang thing. I'm now buying from others just to say "Fuck you" to those middle-eastern assholes who cried at our feet for our soldiers to rescue them, and repay us by jacking up fuel prices. Personally I say the president should write up a bill for all our soldiers who were lost, injured, or got long-term illnesses of any kind, as well as those who are fine, and send to those money-grubbing bastards. Tell them we get our fuel for free until the bill is payed off or something. Then our companies can regulate the price once again.

Then again, if I had my way, I'd fucking nuke every last one of them. Women, children, armies, everything. Let that country finally get a break from war.

We've got smart people in the US, figure out a way to burrow underground and suck it out from under them.

HAHAHA! Damn straight D!!

Heck, they built that "chunnel" under the English Channel, so why couldn't we dig something similar from somewhere off their coast to where the oil is? I'm sure we could figure out how to pipe it back through this long tunnel to our machinery off-shore :D!
