Boycott gas stations that purchase their oil from Saudi Arabia and Iraq: countries that directly finance Islamic terrorism
Here's a cartoon that properly shows what happens when you use one of the 10-miles-per-gallon SUVs:
I recently purchased the Toyota Prius, a hybrid car - the regular engine in combination with the electric motor allows me to get over 50 miles per gallon (for more information on the Toyota Prius click here).
It is extremely important that we do our best to stop financing the corrupt, racist and fascist regimes of Saudi Arabia, Iraq and other Arab/Muslim oil barons. The excellent website www.boycott-middle-east-oil.com has many articles that show how Saudi Arabia plays the double game: on the one hand it says it's our "friend", while on the other it deliberately finances Islamic fascists such as Al-Qaeda/Bin Laden, and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Furthermore, Saudi Arabia completely ignores human, gay and women rights through its implementation of Shaariah (Islamic Law). Here some examples:
There are many other examples. The bottom line is that we can make a difference. We can:
1) Reduce our consumption of oil by using a hybrid car, such as the Toyota Prius.
I quote from www.boycott-middle-east-oil.com:
The power of the American public is stronger than ever. Even if these preferred stations are .04 cents more/gallon, you are only paying an extra dollar per fill-up. Just a small price to pay to hurt the pocket books of the terrorists.
Imagine now that instead of 10,000 Americans we have 100,000,000 Americans that use hybrid cars and don't buy oil from Saudi Arabia/Iraqi sources. In this case we would not be sending $100,400,000,000 (over 100 BILLION dollars) to the regimes that support Islamic terrorism PER YEAR!
I copy below the list of preferred gas stations: those that don't help Saudia Arabia finance Bin Laden and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Here in the San Francisco Bay Area I have stopped filling up at Shell, Exxon and Chevron.
I now only fill up at "Union 76". Please take a minute to check the list below and stop buying oil from Saudi Arabia and Iraq: you'll be helping our efforts on the war on Islamic Terrorism.
Analysis on companies that purchase or do not purchase their oil from Saudia Arabia, Iraq and other OPEC countries
Preferred stations - these stations buy less oil from Saudi Arabia, Iraq and other fascist Islamic countries. Click on the link to check if one of its brands is available in your area:
Borderline gas stations:
Avoid the following gas stations - a large part of the oil they purchase comes from the Middle East. Stop funding Islamic terrorism:
EXXON, MOBIL, CHEVRON, TEXACO, SHELL, MARATHON, ARCO, MOTIVA,VALERO, DIAMOND SHAMROCK, ULTRAMAR, SPEEDWAY,CALTEX
The following countries make up OPEC: Algeria, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Venezuela.
For a printable flyer click here.
By the way, there's a Snopes.com article that claims that not buying from companies that import oil from Saudi Arabia and Iraq will not help. I disagree - the numbers above are clear, and in any case I prefer to buy my gas from companies that buy as little as possible from the Islamic fascists. At the least, if enough people switch from Shell/Chevron/Exxon to Union 76, these companies will naturally disassociate themselves from Saudia Arabia and Iraq.

The cabin of the Prius is as big as the Camry's.
It would not take a whole "fleet" of these cars to "haul" your people - one Prius would be enough. With its 80 horse power, it accelerates much better than many conventional cars I've had in the past.
The Prius is not an experimental car - it is used today by over 130,000 people and has been available to the public for over 3 years. Check out the Toyota Prius user group at:
This is a group of Toyota Prius owners, currently with 5,216 users signed up - ALL of them extremely happy with the car.
You are using 3 to 4 times more gas than what you need (supposing that you really have a 16.96 MPG, which I doubt). You rationalize this unneeded usage and by not using hybrid technology you continue to send your money to Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Al-Qaeda, and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
As for your last remark about Japanese cars: if any American car manufacturer built a hybrid car, I would seriously look at it, and probably purchase it. Unfortunately, today, only Toyota and Honda make hybrids.
For more information on the Toyota Prius click here - and get one if you are serious about not sending your money to Islamic terrorists.

I have to agree with William when it comes to the numbers on the SUV deal, I too have an SUV, which happens to be made by the group that William refered to as Jap Crap and just a note on that I love my SUV made by Nissan. I feel I am doing my part to conserve because it's only a 4 cylinder, but I do also agree with William on the basis that we cannot save energy with double the amount of smaller cars on the roads causing congestion and over loaded compact cars, this just doesn't make good sense. But what does is a hybrid that is cheap for all consumers.
Sincerely, A. Hillis

Any body who buys Jap crap isent American these countries are taking domestic business. So if you want to by from Japan you can move there. The same goes for people who buy oil from the sudi Arabia gas station. For every gallon you buy your funding more terrism

William, there is a contradiction in your postage. When I checked Conocco site, they are stating that Conocco provides gass to Exxon and Mobil. However, you are stating that Exxon and Mobil buy gas from Islamic Countries. What is more current? Is Union 76 (which is the only one in the area I live) really provides gas from not-Islamic countries? Is Exxon and Mobil also provide gas from non-Islamic countries. I would like to know for sure (and I will try to investigate more), and I could start sending e-mails to all my friends. It's easy to find Union 76 in our city. By buying gas from 76 I can easily stop giving my money to Iraq.
For other people.... I do not think it is important to discuss cars here and what we think of the electric cars. It is obvious that majority of population has "old fashion" ones, and will have for quite a few more years. We should think of how we can help to fight terrorism. It is irrelevant which cars are better at this point, Japaneese or American ones.

I had to do a persuassive essay for a 10th grade English essay and I chose to persuade people to stop supporting Islamic terrorism. I found this page VERY helpful, and I found it funny that someone so close minded as to not even give a Hybrid car a chance, would even be looking at this page, more the less getting so defensive about such things. Something seems fishy to me... but anyways thank you for being a great source of information. I support you 100%, as would any other TRUE American.

I do not agree that by owning an SUV then you support terrorist. If you follow that logic then everyone that bought gas for any gas powered vehicle would contribute to terrorism. I do agree that we should not buy oil from any arab nation untill all arab nations condem and root out terrorist and terrorist training.
I will support the gas stations that do not buy arab oil.
Posted by: Jeffery O. Anderson at August 4, 2003 01:10 PM
Thanks for the good information. As for the SUV's I must inform you that 70's fuel standards have killed 46,000 people (7,700 for every one mile per gallon gained)

Research I studied indicated that Shell was one of the companies that was low on the list for importing oil from Saudi Arabia. Can you confirm and update this? I don't have to many choices in my area. Shell, Chevron and Arco are the only stations close to me and I think, from what I've seen in print that Shell imports less than the other two from Saudi Arabia.

By 2015, 90 percent of the world's petroleum exporting capacity will lie in Arab countries. Saudi Arabia produces almost twice as much crude oil as any other country. United States uses 25 percent of the world's crude oil. In the near future, if you want to buy any oil, you're gonna have to go to an Arab country. Even if the United States curbs its petroleum usage, the growing economies in Asia will provide a big enough market for Arab oil. You can huff, you can puff, but the Arabs are gonna be laughing their way to the bank for many years to come, just as they have been for a long while now.

All this talk about buying a hybrid Toyota is b.s. You state that in order to fully support America one must not buy trucks and suvs that are gas hogs because all of the gas that is coming from Arab countries. Well, to be frank, even though Toyota has plants in America to help produce the vehicles a large percentage of Toyota's profits that are made in America go straight back into Japan. All of YOU true Americans who have had many friends and family members fight in wars overseas, especially WWII. Japan tried to steal our freedom from us and now you want to thank Japan for what they did. I do not understand why you would support them by buying a high price item such as an automobile.

I drive a Toyota 4Runner SR5 V-6 with 4 wheel drive. It gets about 15 mpg...closer to 10 in the winter when the 4WD is engaged. Based on the opinions of others here, I guess I am the most un-American one in the group. I only buy my gas from the local Exxon station that a very good friend of mine has owned for years AND I am driving a foreign car. This is all part of a system I like to call FREE ENTERPRISE.
Just so everyone knows:
If an American manufacturer could build a car that ran past 100,000 miles, maybe we wouldn't be losing domestic auto sales. I have 130,000 miles on my Toyota and it still runs like brand new. Everything works: no rearview mirrors falling off, no transmissions blowing, not even a check engine light!
Why would I waste money on a lesser-quality car that will require more maintenance. I'm not going to blindly give money to Ford, GM, or Dodge just because it's the American way.
I am ready to purchase another vehicle and use my Toyota for winter use only. I'm not buying a car based on the location of manufacture, but based on what I'm getting for my money. During a test drive of the VW Toureag, the computer read 14.2 MPG. Am I conserving gas? HELL NO! Is that un-American? HELL NO! In fact, my decision is very American because if it wasn't for this great nation, I might not have the choice of which car to buy.
You people need to stop wasting your money because you think you are doing a service to this nation. The money I will save by buying a car that doesn't fall apart will go into other areas of the economy, as I will have more money to put back into it. I am not funding terrorism by "guzzling gas". I would not help prevent terrorism by "conserving gas".
If you are really so concerned with stopping terrorism, get off your lazy ass, strap on some guns, and let God sort 'em out.

We can all play the holier-than-thou game. I got rid of my car and only travel by bicycle now. No gas stations at all for me. No traffic jams. No guilty conscience. The rest of you are only talking about shades of gray. However, I still applaud any effort to reduce trips to the gas station.

You stupid americans
here in the UK we do not use as much feul as you do but we still buy oil from mid east countries cos we need it, if we dont then the russians, chinese and indians will have the chance to buy more and they will develop more and we won't.
But anyway since when an american came up with a sensible idea, I think that with our stronger EU we will dominate one day and you little fuckers will be forgotten, you have no civilisation, no deep history, no culture (apart from the gun and crime one) and no morals.
We can all live in mutual love and understanding each others culture (for those of us who have one).

Gas boycotts do not work. If one vendor has a glut, they just sell the gas to the other vendor, thus retail brand boycotts do not affect import numbers.
Posted by: Boycott Watch at June 26, 2007 08:30 PM
CITGO is changing its name to "PETRO EXPRESS" and are owned by oil companies coming from Venezuela. DO NOT BUY FROM Citgo or "PETRO EXPRESS" "PETRO EXPRESS" IS ALSO 100% OWNED BY COMMUNIST DICTATOR "CHAVEZ". A country where their President, Hugo CHAVEZ, wants America ANNIHILATED. Buying from him would support a country who would rather see us all dead! Mr. Chavez proclaimed President Bush to be "the devil" in an address to the United Nations. Now Chavez’s government is calling for the death of President Bush. Delegates were seen on film chanting "Death to America” and holding signs that read, "Death to Bush.”

You people don't get it. Its not the gas that is the problem its the company's that make their PROFITS BY PURCHASING THEIR OIL from country's that either support terrorism or are ungrateful for what the US taxpayers and our military HAS DONE for them. Lets face it there would not be a Kuwait at if it were not for the 1st gulf war.

Support your own nation. Buy domestic vehicles, stop importing - this means all products. My 92 Ford Escort gets 34 mpg, just upkeep. Recycle; plastics, clothing (poly), = Oil. Keep trash inside your vehicle until you reach your destination. Support local farmers, local jobs, and carpool to work, less travel = less gas. Spend more time trying to improve the environment and lives of others and less time watching brainwashing television; Work = Productivity and Improvement. Judge not and supprot Democracy, start by changing yourself before you try to change others, don't be hypocrytic. Forget about the past and forgive. Look to the Lord and The Bible for all questions and answers.

There will never be a time when we do not import SOMETHING. As the book "The World is Flat" by Thomas L Friedman explains how our world is flat because of many things....amongst it...the Internet, offshoring, and outsourcing. Information is obtained by anyone that has access to computers.
I agree that the issue here is the gas and not the type of car. No matter whether we "guzzle" or "conserve", if we only buy from "American" gas stations, logic says we could hurt the foreign oil companies a little and make the cost of a barrel come down. (Supply too much + damand is low = lower prices in order to get a demand increase....basic economics).
Toyota (and other "foreign" cars) are now produced right here in America. Does that make Toyota and "American" Company....No! but, we do reap benefits from that (jobs, some of the profits, etc). Just because I can't get a return on my money from buying a Prius and I choose to buy a car that not only transports 5-7 people and gets over 20mpg (and is an SUV)...does not make me UN-american.
And, For the little British Boy (and I quote the word "boy"). There are all kinds of people in America. Ones with educated opinion, some with uneducated opinions. However, we have the freedom of our opinions. Do I agree with everyone above? Absolutely not! I don't have to. You British people have educated people and uneducated people. If you are a "boy" as your name states, you are still too UNeducated to be calling ALL Americans any names. There is no country that "ALL" people are the same. That's a pretty harsh word to categorize an entire country. The undeveloped (or previously undeveloped countries) are now educating their people and countries like China and India are making this world flatter and flatter.
To the Marine Sister: This is NOT a credible site to do ANY report. This is purely an opinion site. As an OLDER college student, I had to learn to differentiate (and also stated in "The World is Flat" chapter 7....just because you find information on the Internet, does not make it credible.)
Again, the subject is the gas and who are not importing from foreign companies. I got this list today in an email....and I am trying to find a credible source to verify. I found this forum and found the opinions very interesting...not from a credible source, of course.
The stations listed in my email that are "American" stations: Sunoco, Conoco, Sinclair, BP/Phillips, Hess, ARCO with BP and Amoco doing some purchasing from foreign companies.

A hybrid is a rip off. For MOST people you will never ever recoup your costs in money over the cost of the vehicle. If you ALREADY planning to buy a $24,000 car FINE a prius is an option but if your shopping to SAVE MONEY its the worst option you can pick. A used SUV will save you more money than a Prius (counting the COST of the vehicle as well)
If I had to choose between a $10,000 35mpg econobox and the Prius the econobox is a no brainer. I would have to drive the prius for 600,000 miles or over 11 years at the mileage I acrue per year JUST to break even in gas savings. (prius would save you $7 a month in fuel at thats for MY heavy mileage!! most people would see even LESS savings) over a 35mpg car.
What we need are ELECTRIC CARS. Specifically ECONOBOX IE under $12,000 electric cars. Just give me air heat 4door compact to mid size sedan. Tape deck manual everything and I would be in heaven.
The car would be free. It would not cost me on stinking dime to buy it. The amount of money I current spend on gasoline every month would be MUCH greater than the monthly payments on such a car. I would just take my monthly "gas" money and send it to the bank instead of the gas stations.
The car would be FREE in 3 years time. I spend over $4000 a year in gasoline and this would save me about $3500 in gas (ie my daily commute)
How much would it add to my electric bill? about $16 a month.($1 per 100 miles for NIMH powered vehicles)
Add $1600 for a Grid tie in and $1000 in "Nano Solar" solar panels and the car would add NOTHING to my electric bill and be ZERO load on the electric grid and be 100% pollution free.
You want this project to be effective? FORGET not buying or buying "mid east" oil.
SCREW THEM ALL.
I want to put CHEVRON and GM out of business. the only reason we are not driving electric cars RIGHT NOW is that GM crushed there electric cars and sold the EVER IMPORTANT nimh battery patent to texaco and a week later Chevron bought texaco and promptly buried the patent.
How? Simple just refuse to license it. They will only license it to large producers like "major" auto makers and who are the one very group of people who would rather DIE than make electric cars? Large Auto makers. Convenient ehh.
Mercedes Just announced they plan to have NO gas powered cars by 2015. I find that date Hilariously funny.
Take a guess when Chevron's NIMH patent expires.
Want to make a difference? PUT CHEVRON AND GM OUT OF BUSINESS
Hydrogen is an even bigger crock. It will cost us EVEN MORE money and KEEP us attached to the gas pumps. They will just be pumping H2 instead of Gasoline. No wonder they have such a hard on for hydrogen.
Makes me sick.
Posted by: Chris Taylor at July 16, 2008 10:59 PM
Chris, good post, but I do believe I am saving money with a Prius. Here's how it breaks down for me:
- With my previous car I could get about 15-20 MPG. Let's say 18 MPG.
- I drive about 30,000 miles per year.
- One year of gas for my previous car would cost me today $7,500 dollars (30,000 miles / 18 MPG = 1,667 gallons x $4.5 = $7,500).
- One year of gas for my Prius costs me today $2,454 dollars (30,000 miles / 55 MPG = 545 gallons x $4.5 = $2,454)
I am saving over $5,000 per year.
If I assume the 35 MPG, the costs would be 3857 dollars (30,000 miles / 35 MPG = 857 gallons * $4.5 = $3857), so I would be saving over $3,000 per year. This assuming that gas is not going to go up and cost even more than $4.5/gallon.
FYI, I paid $21,000 for my Prius, 4 years ago.
