    Lucky me, I always buy my gas at Hess. And my DH and I each just bought scooters to get to work, since we both drive gas guzzlers. I have a horse trailer. My Dh drives a small motor home.

    Quote:I got it via the Federal Railroad Administration, from a director or something. DH works there, but I have seen this before. My BIL works in fleet management for Verizon, and verified some of the info.

    Wow, WalMart actually sells something that's made in America! Who'd'a thunk?
    I've stayed away from Exxon ever since the Valdese tanker incident, which they still haven't paid for.

    I've known for a while that Maverik, Flying J, Phillips, and Sinclair don't buy middle eastern oil and they are the only places I will buy gas from. I don't know if it helps anything at all but I feel better knowing that those clowns aren't getting my buck. (or 4 bucks as the case may be.)
