We need to buy American all the way around

“It’s time to wake up America!” Are you aware that the Saudis are boycotting American products? They are also gouging us on oil prices. Shouldn’t we return the favor and let these giant oil importers see who really generates their profits?

How about leaving American dollars in America? A remedy might be to boycott their gas. Every time you put gas in your car you can avoid putting money into the hands of Saudi Arabians. Just purchase gas from companies that do not import oil from the Saudis and Venezuela, whose dictator Chavez openly vows our economic destruction. We pay Chavez’s regime nearly $10 billion per year in oil revenues. It’s time to stop! Ask where they get their gas, they’ll tell you. I did.

The following gas companies import Middle Eastern Oil: SHELL, CHEVRON, EXXON/MOBIL, MARATHON and AMOCO.

The following companies buy “zero” from the Middle East. SUNOCO, CONOCO, SINCLAIR, BP/PHILLIPS, HESS, ARCO, MAVERICK, FLYING J, VALERO and MURPHY OIL USA. Walmart gets gas from southern Arkansas and is fully USA owned and produced.

All of this information is available from the U.S. Department of Energy.

I am checking everything I buy, right down to my food. If we buy American maybe we can create more jobs for Americans. Won’t you please join me?

USA all the way. God bless America.
