damn thats alot!!!!!18 huh?!

$$$$$18 billion$$$$$




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 it 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 :

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 E! astern oil:

Citgo.......................0 barrels
Sunoco...................0 barrels
Conoco...................0 barrels
Sinclair....................0 barrels
BP/Phillips..............0 barrels
Hess........................0 barrelsARC0.0 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.

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 H! UNDRED MILLION

Again, all you have to do is send this to 10 people.

How long 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!

Whats even worse than that... Americas current gas prices have raised 200% because of a hurricane that hit our country... so do ya think its the Saudis that are raisin' the gas prices... there plenty of gas there just aint enough sense!

I'm sorry hon but oil is now $70.00 a barrel and the arabs set the price not the oil companies. What the oil companies don't tell us is the truth. There is more oil in this country than we could use in one hundred years! There are two reasons why we don't use it. 1 the epa has made it impossible to dispose of the salt water present in alot of oil found here in the midwest so the oil companies have plugged the holes and stopped drilling in this area and only concentrate on the oil fields where that isn't a problem. Also my family has oil wells pumping on their land and the pumps are only allowed to pump for a few hours a day, not all day and night like in the past. Why is that ? 2 We the usa, are saving our oil reserves for the day when the arabs have depleted their limited oil fields. When that happens we will be in control again just like in the early days of oil! The oil companies get blamed for much but are only responsible for a little of what goes on in this country. For instance, every time they want to build a refinery they are run off by the people who are now complaining about high gas costs! The price would be lower if there was more capacity built into the system. They are not gougeing they are just participateing in the capitalist system that has made this the greatest country in the world. The high prices will lead to alternate fuel sources which wouldn't have been available any other way. If you don't like the prices just drive less, eventually the price will reflect the demand!
