When You Buy Gas, Is Your Money Going To The Middle East?

Do you remember the 1970s, when gas was being carefully rationed? Every day you could see lines at the pumps going back for blocks. A lot of Americans grumbled about having to wait to pump, about the price, and about the meager amounts that they were allotted.

One blogger says if you thought that was bad, consider the alternative: your money going to the Middle East every time you fill up the tank. Tom O'Halloran blogged about some research he did. He wants Americans to know that many popular gas companies buy oil that is imported from Saudi Arabia.

"Nothing is more frustrating than the feeling that every time I fill up my tank," O'Halloran writes. "I’m sending my money to people who I get the impression want me, my family and my friends dead."

He wants all U.S. citizens to be aware that Saudi Arabians are boycotting American products and gouging oil prices on Americans. He thinks if more people knew this, they'd be careful about buying gas at stations that deal with Saudi oil markets.

O'Halloran made some lists after doing research with the Department of Energy. It seems that Shell, Chevron/Texaco, Exxon/Mobil, Marathon/Speedway and Amoco are all importing hundreds of billions of barrels from the Middle East every year.

Considering oil is $100 to $110 per barrel, the math is staggering.

In addition to the Middle East, O'Halloran warns that Citgo Gas comes from Venezuela.

If you prefer your money stay in the states, you should buy your gas from Sunoco, Conoco, Sinclair, BP/Phillips, Hess, Arco, Pilot, Flying J, Love's, RaceTrac and Valero. In addition, Murphey gas, sold at Walmart, is fully U.S. owned and produced, and the company gives scholarships to high school graduates who are legal citizens in their South Arkansas town.

O'Halloran is urging people to boycott companies who purchase foreign oil. Why not keep the money in America?
