Petition Tag - for terrorism
If we can't drill for American oil in ANWR then maybe we can alter from whom we purchase our gas. Companies that purchase middle east oil are supporting terrorism, but companies that do not purchase middle east oil support freedom.
This is an eye opener if you ever thought you were pumping American Gas from an American Gas Station. Something to ponder the next time you need to fill your gas tank. 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.
Major companies importing Middle Eastern oil (from 9/1/00- 8/31/01):
Shell 205,742,000 barrels
Chevron/Texaco 144,332,000 "
Exxon/Mobil 130,082,000 "
Marathon 117,740,000 "
Amoco 62,231,000 "
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 in mind.. Share it with friends.. STOP PAYING FOR TERRORISM
