"Venezuelan government is the sole owner of Citgo gasoline company. Venezuelan Dictator Hugo Chavez has vowed to bring down the U.S. government. Chavez, president of Venezuela, told a TV audience: "Enough of imperialist aggression; we must tell the world: down with the U.S. empire. We have to bury imperialism this century."

The guest on his television program, beamed across Venezuela, was Cindy Sheehan, the antiwar activist. Chavez recently had as his guest Harry Belafonte, who called President Bush "the greatest terrorist in the world."

Chavez is pushing a socialist revolution and has a close alliance with Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.

Regardless of your feelings about the war in Iraq, the issue here is that we have a socialist dictator vowing to bring down the government of the U.S. And he is using our money to achieve his goal!

The Venezuelan government, run by dictator Chavez, is the sole owner of Citgo gas company. Sales of products at Citgo stations sends money back to Chavez to help him in his vow to bring down our government.

Why should U.S. citizens who love freedom be financing a dictator who has vowed to take down our government?
Very important. Please forward this to your friends and family. Most of them don't know that Citgo is owned by the Venezuelan government. I have checked the facts regarding Citgo ownership and you can read at http://www.citgo.com/AboutCITGO.jsp"



tl/dr: Chavez owns Citgo

boycotting citgo is a good idea i read something like if we boycott major gas companies that after sometime all gas prices would be very much lower
well if we only boycott one, then other companie's business will go up, which will make them want to raise prices because theyre getting more business....well, maybe not, but its a theory. i dont have to worry, i get gas on post for a better price than any places around here.

LoL Venezuela a country most americans cant spell will not be taken seriously with the american public. I would like to see a 3rd world country take down our imperialist agenda. Most of our oil comes from the canadians anyway (or so Iv heard). So as long as they love us were fine.

Who really cares....


If we're dumb enough to buy oil from Saudi Arabia, then this is no stretch.

Wait, so by boycotting citgo, cutting off a huge supply of money, ****ing their economy, putting more people into poverty over there, we are doing good for the world? That's stupid. Chavez may be a douche bag, but he won't last very long over there.

You kids are dumb. Why the **** would you not want to buy gas from the ONLY company that does not get oil from "REAL" dictators in the Middle East? (When was the last time there was a fair election in the Mid-East... oh yea, Palestine. Heh, funny how that worked out) You guys say you're all for representative governments than you go and try to **** on a country who's leader is reveared by the vast majority of the population, most of whom are rural poor, and why? Because he talks **** on the US? You would probably talk **** too if you were democratically elected in a 3rd world country then almost kicked out by a Coup backed by a military super power.

If anything you guys should be joining the movement to buy gas ONLY from Citgo because that money you put in your tank won't be going to Mid East dictators. Or do you guys just really not support democracy?

People don't make sense =\

The thing is, we cant. We cant afford to spend more money on a car just to stop buying oil, which is convienient right now.

What we need are companies with some cahones to make better electronic/solar/hydrogen powered cars possible. If you can come up with the technology to turn slimey goo from the earth into 1000's of horsepower of energy in 4 billion years of evolution, then we can find a clean burning, effecient method of which to get our lazy asses from one place to another.

Or we can use alcohol or soy/bio diesel, which are both much more likely and easy.


If no one buys fuel from Citgo, what's to stop them from just selling it to another company?
