Fill Up Your Car With “Terror-Free” Gas

Brilliant!  (h/t – Lucianne.com)

Drivers are always on the lookout for the lowest gas prices. But after we fill up, where does the money go? A new kind of gas station in Mllard that wants people to think about that question.

The gas station at 131 Street and Q [in Omaha, NE] used to show a Sinclair dinosaur. Now, in big bold letters “Terror Free Oil.”

The idea is to sell gasoline made from oil orginating in countries friendly to the United States.  On its website, the terror free oil organization says the U.S. is funding its own demise.  It’s not open yet, but when it is customers will have some not-so-light reading while they fill up.

The terror free oil initiative says its goal is to cut funding to terrorist organizations and countries sympathetic to terrorism by not buying their oil.

There’s more info on the “Terror-Free Oil” initiative at their website:  LINK HERE

While you are at it, don’t forget to drive past the local CITGO station and look for another alternative.  CITGO=Anti-American… Boycott CITGO!

  1. That is a nice idea.
    How much more would you pay per gallon for “non-terror” gas?

  2. Just one thing wrong with this idea: oil is fungible.

  3. #2 – Which means: We could buy all our oil from terror-unfriendly countries… but then the Europeans, Chinese, India, etc. would only take up the slack in buying the oil from the terror-friendly countries.

    For a similar reason – I mean, market forces in general – proposals advanced by both Democrats and President Bush to “end our dependence on oil” are delusional.

    Let’s say solar + battery technology suddenly became 5 times as cost-efficient. Or pick any energy technology you want; the principle is the same. All that would happen is, people (including developing countries) would discover new uses for the new, cheap energy. Oil use / demand might decline a little, or get more flexible, as there are now more alternatives. But it wouldn’t just vanish – not in any large way. Oil would remain a gigantic industry for decades.

    Which means: We have to deal with terrorism by actually dealing with terrorism. That is, by harming – and then re-building / re-integrating – countries who give safe harbor to terrorists in any form.

    Now here’s an angle where the market forces are helping us. Oil got close to $80 a barrel last year. Because of that, it became reasonable / profitable for some users to get more efficient, some producers to bring more production online, etc. Therefore, a year later, oil is now $50 a barrel. Which does a world of hurt to both Venezuela (Chavez) and Iran. Yay! (The Saudis recently deciding they had better undercut Iran also has something to do with it.)

  4. oil is now $50 a barrel

    I think it costs them under 20 dollars per barrel to extract it.
    Oil would have to crash to under $20 for it to hurt those countries

  5. Let’s all boycott CITGO and punish Hugo Chavez for doing so many anti-American things such as building schools for the poor and defending the rights of gays. He is the DEVIL. Thank God we have a president with real values who brought liberty and freedom to the people of Iraq. How dare Chavez make a mockery of Bush at the UN! God Bless America. God bless the GOP.

  6. Which does a world of hurt to both Venezuela (Chavez) and Iran.

    And Iraq too, unfortunately. The “re-building / re-integrating” process could be severely hampered if oil prices drop too far.

    “Terror Free Oil” is an interesting concept, but I wonder how they define what a “friendly” country is. Does Russia qualify? What about Mexico? Angola? Nigeria? A lot of Nigerian oil revenue ends up in the hands of corrupt local leaders, some of whom are Muslims.

  7. Hess is the best we can do up here in Taxachusetts. Fortunately, I usually by from the local guy around the corner. I’ll ask him, next time, where he gets his gas from.

  8. The guy might not be able to give you a straight answer (so to speak). Most fuel tanks at American gas stations contain product from all over.

    This is a fascinating series about where gasoline comes from. (Just skip the parts about the low-income gas station workers, whose situation is entirely and utterly a result of poor decision-making, blah blah.)

  9. #5 – “Let’s all boycott CITGO and punish Hugo Chavez for doing so many anti-American things such as building schools for the poor and defending the rights of gays.”

    Oh really, Janet? Please cite your sources for this statement.

    All I see is a runt who idolizes Castro and has asked his parliament to pass a law that would (a) ban presidential terms in office in order for him to stay on as “el lider” and (b) nationalize all major industries so that the state (rather than the PEOPLE) can control trade and markets.

    Oh, and while we’re on the topic – he has also pledged to “wipe out” his opponents so that his and ONLY HIS views can be heard.

    Gee, and has our President done such a thing? Last time I checked, the Dow was at an all-time high, Congress was being run by Dhimmicrats and Code Pink(os) were still running around free as lady birds.

    Checkmate.

  10. When you boycott CITGO stations you mainly hurt American small business owners/operators, most of whom probably initiated their relationships with CITGO long before Hugo Chavez came to power in Venezuela.

    I doubt that a boycott would hurt Chavez. He doesn’t care if residents of his country are hurt economically. Besides, he has customers to take all the oil we don’t want.

    Don’t get me wrong. I have no use for Hugo Chavez, but boycotts are not always what they appear to be.

    I have relatives living close to the Omaha station Bruce refers to and will be interested in following its success.

  11. While I sympathize with the CITCO station-owner, they do have the choice of changing their affiliations and purchasing from another distributor. At what point do they transition from unwitting dupes…to fellow-travelers…to unindicted co-conspirators??

    I stopped using Exxon and later Exxon-Mobil after the Valdez accident in Alaska and the stupid, ignorant remarks of Exxon sr. management under the principle that I don’t HAVE TO do business with stupid people. Accidents happen…but corporate stupidity is curable. And at-long-last I’ve decided to fore-go CITCO even though my local pump-owner’s a friend until he wises-up….

    But enough about people who buy stuff from China.

    Isn’t globalization wonderful?

    You beat me to it. Sigh.

  14. Let’s see, Chavez is nationalizing the media, energy, utilities, etc. He’s asked his congress to allow him to decree laws himself. Poverty is climbing.
    Amazingly, somehow electronic voting machines only work in Venezuela (the US too when democrats win). As far as I know, he STILL hasn’t repaired the La Guaira bridge between Caracas and the airport forcing people to add an hour to their commute. Think of all the extra pollution that causes.

    Free speech is gone, but everybody’s becoming equally miserable. Further, he’s sucking up to Ahmadinejad, Castro, Putin etc.

    What’s not to love? Sounds like the devil to me.

  16. terror-free oil? between that Chavez (nut-case dictator in the making) and the members of OPEC (funding islamist-based terrorism throughout the world) where does one get it?

  17. Still no comment from Janet at #5. Typical libtroll.

  18. Castro has thousands of gays in Cuba prisons. If Chavez is anything like him, watch out.

  19. ThatGay,

    Don’t include Putin in that list of enemies. Have you personally looked into his eyes and divined his soul? I didn’t think so! The Decider has fully vetted him and says he’s a swell guy.

    As He said, “I looked the man in the eye. I found him to be very straight forward and trustworthy and we had a very good dialogue. I was able to get a sense of his soul.”

    The majority of our oil comes from Canada & Mexico. Only about 12% comes from the ME, so terror-free oil isn’t hard.

    Although, Venezuela is our third supplier.

    #19

    It’s called “Diplo-speak”, Michael. Look into it.
    Also look for Putin trying to put the Soviet Union back together as much as possible (it’s already started).
