This article was e-mailed to me by a friend from California. I don’t know the validity of the statements so I’m leaving it up to you to verify or criticize.

If this article’s statements are true, then at least I was able to help members of benzworld.org.

Here you go:



WHERE TO BUY GAS IN THE US:


Gas rationing in the 80's worked even though we grumbled about it. It might even be good for us!

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.

These companies import Middle Eastern oil:
Shell............................ 205,742,000 barrels
Chevron/Texaco......... 144,332,000 barrels
Exxon/Mobil............... 130,082,000 barrels
Marathon/Speedway... 117,740,000 barrels
Amoco..............................62,231,000 barrels

Citgo gas is from South America .If you do the math at $30/barrel, these imports amount to over $18 BILLION! (Oil is now $90 - $100 a barrel)

Here are some large companies that do not import Middle Eastern oil:

Sunoco..................0 barrels
Conoco...................0 barrels
Sinclair.................0 barrels
B P/Phillips............0 barrels
Hess.......................0 barrels
ARC0......................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.

I
The point that I'd like to make is that we should all be using one of the "Top Tier" gasolines as recommended by several of the auto manufactures. For this reason I use Chevron exclusively but Texaco is one too and they have merged. Google will give you the rest and they list several companies that are unique to Canada.
Yep, I only use Chevron in all of my cars.
