RE: [GreenYes] Fw: How To Drive Down Gas Prices
For what it's worth, I received the below and have not had the time to
verify it's accuracy.

'Course I don't want those dirty S.O.B.s drilling in the Alaskan wilderness


No more Arab Oil!!!!!!!!!!!!
Considering gas prices have risen $.21 per gallon in the past ten days here
I thought this was a timely and interesting piece. Where to buy gasoline and
not support terrorism is food for thought.

Yisrael Medad of the Begin Center sent the following information. Every time
you fill up the car, you can avoid putting more money into Middle Eastern
coffers. Just buy from gas companies that don't import their oil from the
Middle East.

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. 

Major companies that import  Middle Eastern oil (for the period 9/1/00

Shell 205,742,000 barrels
Chevron/Texaco 144,332,000 barrels
Exxon/Mobil 130,082,000 barrels
Marathon 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
Conoco 0
Sinclair 0
BP/Phillips 0

All of this information is available from the Department of Energy and can
be easily documented. Refineries located in the U.S. are 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.
