Sorry, again couldn't think of an appropriate title. Brain=mush.

Here's something serious Something light And something positive you can do to feel a little more in control:
CAVEAT EMPTOR: I (Kid Sis) didn't write this, nor did I research it. Just trusting the Email Chain Letter Gods on this one. Please let me know if it's a hoax.

Gas rationing in the 80's worked, even though we grumbled about it, 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 Saudis.

Nothing is more frustrating than knowing every time I fill-up the tank, I am sending my money to people who are trying to kill my family, my friend, and me. 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---------------144,332,0000 BARRELS
EXXON / MOBIL---------------------130,082,000 BARRELS
MARATHON / SPEEDWAY--------------117,740,000 BARRELS
AMOCO------------------------------62,231,000 BARRELS

At $56.00 a barrel these imports amount to over $37 BILLION

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
ARCO---------------------------------------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.

However, to have an impact, we need to reach literally millions of gas buyers. It really is simple to do.....Now do not wimp out at this point...... keep reading and I'll explain how simple it is to reach millions of people | I am sending this note to thirty people. If each of you send it to at least Ten more (300x 10=3000)....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 onto ten friends each, then 30 million people will have been contacted. It goes One level further, you guessed it.....THREE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE.

If each of us sends this E-mail out to 10 people within one day, all 300 MILLION people could be contacted within eight days.

Kid Sis talking: You can copy and paste the above or link to here.
It's not that hard to find these gas stations. Just go to their websites and enter in your city's info under their locator page.

Aren't BP and Amoco the same.. I believe they merged and most places took over BP for the name..

MoDigli said...

I wonder if that's true!
I always buy from BP, just cause it's closest to me, and usually has the best price in my area.

Also, I saw this about Snowball.

Has Snowball Been Found?

Kid Sis said...

TTD, Good to know...but also good info for people in the areas that didn't change the name.

Mo, cool! Arco has better prices too, and they're everywhere in LA. Looking forward to feeling better at the pump.

I'm trusting the official Snowball site, because they don't have ulterior motives of making us feel better. According to them, no Snowball.

Honestly, i think the dog is dead. Of heartbreak, at the least.

Looks like Snopes has debunked this. Too bad -- I was looking forward to being able to contribute in some way apart from grumbling at the TV whenever Bush or his cronies appear.

MoDigli said...

Shite! ... The site you have there for snowball looks much more reputable. Dang. Everytime I think about that puppy and poor child who never ever forget that trauma I just start to SEETHE!!!! ..... UGH! I want to STOMP my feet!
