RE: FW: [GreenYes] Re: Gas
Boy, I don't recall who started this, but they got the full 39 lashes!
 
Whenever I get an email of the chain type, I always check it out at urbanlegends.com. 
 
The OTHER chain type is the virus notice and I always check that out at symantec.com
 
Both good sites to keep either bookmarked or in the brain file cabinet.

For anyone who thinks this chain letter might possibly have the slightest grain of truth to it, please go to http://www.snopes.com/ and do a search for "oil."  There you will find, virtually word-for-word, the ridiculous e-mail message that started this discussion.  For those who tend to fall for these internet hoaxes, I suggest you bookmark this site for quick reference when someone sends you one of these things.  Other sites to check the veracity of messages you get are http://www.nonprofit.net/hoax/ and http://www.urbanlegends.com/.

Now, can we drop this and get back to something real?

Has anyone (besides the Armantrout's) verified these numbers, or is this just another anti-Middle East chain letter to delete? I applaud the earlier replyers (sp?) to the original e-mail, who diverted the topic of the e-mail from its suspicious intent to one of real importance - fossil fuel overconsumption.

I started looking into this and read that:
"Phillips and its co-venturers-ExxonMobil (operator), Shell and BP
-- are negotiating terms with the Saudi government."
http://www.phillips66.com/locations/saudiarabia.htm
And that Conoco merged with Phillips in August of 2002:
http://www.conocophillips.com/news/nr/083002_complete.asp
That moves Conoco and Phillips into the first category, below, with the other major companies that import (or will be importing) Middle Eastern oil.

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

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.
