Re: [GreenYes] Gas
"Just buy from gas companies that don't import their  oil from the Saudis," 
and pass the message on till it reaches 300 million people. You make it sound 
so simple.  The problem is, the favorable companies you list cannot suddenly 
start supplying 300 million additional customers.  Where would the additional 
oil come from?  If production, refining, shipping and distribution capacity 
from non-Middle East sources was sufficient (and economical) enough to supply 
the whole country, don't you think we'd already be doing so?  I'm not saying 
your idea is a bad one, it is just extremely oversimplified.

How about: get out of your SUV and buy a car with better gas mileage?  Or 
bike to work? Etc.

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. 

Major companies that 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............. 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 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............. 

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 long would all that take? If each of us sends this e-mail out to ten more 
people within one day of receipt, all 300 MILLION people could conceivably be 
contacted within the next 8 days!!!
