I buy my gas from Citgo whenever I see one, for some reason...I can't recall now, but it has to do with how that company is fairly, if not entirely, independent of Middle East concerns.

Citgo is Hugo Chavez - the dictator of our Hemisphere -

I avoid Citgo at all costs - 7/11's are getting rid of Citgo

Why do people cry about gas yet don't even flinch when forking over $6 bucks for a latte a Starbucks?

I pretty much buy gas only from Citgo for some reason. Maybe it has to do with all that home heating oil they provide at a 40% discount to half a million needy families in 23 of the 50 states during the winter...

Gas and oil are fungible commodities. Therefore, any oil you consume will 'fund terror,' because it drives up the world price of that commodity. It's like drinking from one side of a lake because you don't want the water level on the other side to fall.

Yeah, but you do have to get gas from someplace. I can still decide on that much...

If the gas is cheap and it wont make a knocking sound in my car, then I don’t car about any “terrorist” connection. It’s too remote to worry about. The US government seems to do just fine with associating themselves with “terrorists” or dictators when it benefits them so why should I worry about where my gas comes from.
