A friend of mine says there is an email floating around in cyber space somewhere that lists the oil companies that buy domestic oil, and also the co's that buy foreign oil. Anyone out there ever seen this list??...If so, I sure would like to see it. Sure would be nice if all of us OLD GASSERS only purchased gas from stations who use domestic oil..Thoughts??...tks Warren

Warren, I don't believe ANY company in exsistance right now doesn't have some ties to foreign oil. Valero would have been my guess, but according to their website they refine South and Central American Oil. There is a website that tells of the companies that do not use Middle Eastern Oil; www.warrior-scholar.com maybe this is the website you heard of?

The e-mail that I got states the following. I don't know how accurate it is.
These Companies import Middle Eastern oil.
Shell 205,742,000 Barrels
Chevron/Texaco 144,332,000 Barrels
Exxon/Mobile 130,082,000 Barrels
Marathon/Speedway 117,740,000 Barrels
Amaco 62,231,000 Barrels
Citgo is from South America

Large Companies that do not import Middle Eastern oil:

Sunaco 0 Barrels
Conoco 0 Barrels
Sinclair 0 Barrels
BP/Phillips 0 Barrels
Hess 0 Barrels
Arco 0 Barrels

Thanks for the input...I would encourage everyone to purchase your fuel from stations that use domestic oil (SINCLAIR, BP, PHILLIPS, CONOCO)...In the Boise, ID. area, there are several MAVERICK stations and a few FLYING J. Both of these stations use domestic oil, I'm told. Again, thanks for info...Warren

No offense Swabby, but the companies you named do use foreign oil, just not oil from the Middle East. In fact the email you are refering to says the same thing, as does the website I gave where the email came from. Any oil from Canada and Mexico, where we get over half of our oil, is foreign oil. BP stands for British Petroleum, they use "Beyond Petroleum" in their commercials but as a very small stockholder in a good portion of the companies listed I know that all trade in foreign oil. According to "Flying J" website they use foreign oil, Canadian.

Nope Frontier gets some from Canada and % at one of their refineries from 'other' foreign supplies.
