is more frustrating than the feeling that every time we fill-up the
car gas tank, money is sent to people who are trying to kill me,
my family, and my friends. It turns out that some oil companies import a lot
of Middle Eastern oil and others do not import any. It might be
interesting for Americans to know which oil companies are the best to
buy their gas from.
Here is the list:
Top 4 companies that import Middle Eastern oil
(for the period 9/1/00 - 8/31/01).
By the way, 86% of all Middle Eastern oil comes from Saudi Arabia
If you do the math at $30/barrell, these imports amount to about $18
Billion. That's a lot of money.
Here are some large companies that do not import much Middle Eastern
All of this information is available from the Department of Energy and can be
easily documented. Refineries located in the U.S. are required to state where
they get their oil and how much they are importing. They report on a monthly basis.
Keep this list in your car; share it with friends.
