    Citgo and Chavez

    Verified with SNOPES...

    AT A CITGO STATION, REGULAR WAS PRICED AT $2.82 PER GALLON; NO CUSTOMERS. HOWEVER, ACROSS THE STREET IT WAS SELLING FOR $2.85 PER GALLON AND ALL PUMPS HAD CARS WAITING TO FUEL. HERE'S WHY!!!!

    Have you noticed how the Citgo signs have disappeared in the past 7-8 months? Very clever move by Chavez. But guess what... CITGO IS CHANGING ITS NAME...this is serious Americans...make sure you read .

    NEWS FLASH:

    Chavez is NOW getting a Russian Weapons Factory built by Putin. The RUSSIANS are building an AK-47 Kalashnikov Assault Rifle factory in Venezuela to give armament support to Communist Rebel groups throughout the Americas < /st1ountry-region> .

    Chavez NOW has IRANIANS operating his oil refineries in Venezuela for him. It is likely only a matter of time, if not already, before Chavez has Iranian built LONG RANGE missiles, with a variety of warhead types aimed at: Guess Who?

    CITGO is NOW in the process of Changing Its Name to PETRO EXPRESS due to the loss of gasoline sales in the USA , due to the recent publicity of ownership by Chavez o f Venezuela . Every dollar you spend with CITGO or PETRO EXPRESS gasoline will be used against you, your basic human rights, and your freedoms. He will start wars here in the Americas that will probably be the death of millions.

    THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT BECAUSE CHAVEZ IS STARTING TO FEEL THE LOSS OF REVENUE FROM HIS HOLDINGS. HE OWNS CITGO. This is a very important move that everyone should be aware of.

    ANNOUNCED JUST RECENTLY: CITGO, BEING AWARE THAT SALES ARE DOWN DUE TO U.S. CUSTOMERS NOT WANTING TO BUY FROM 'CITGO-CHAVEZ', HAS STARTED TO CHANGE THE NAME OF SOME OF THEIR STORES TO 'PETRO EXPRESS'. DO NOT BUY FROM 'PETRO EXPRESS' EITHER!!! 'PETRO EXPRESS' I S ALSO 100% OWNED BY 'CHAVEZ.'

    One cent going to Hugo Chavez from gas I buy is too much for me. My car has been Citgo gas free since 2005.

    Whenever you see "verified with Snopes" on one of those chain emails, it's almost a guarantee that the opposite is true.

    Usually don't put much weight behind chain emails, but there aren't any citgos around me anyways so true or not I don't buy from 'em.

    I can't remember the last time I bought Citgo gas and I won't be buying it anytime soon.

    Thanks for the Snopes linky.

    I can't think of where a citgo is near where I live any way.

    Aren't/weren't they called Holland Oil too?

    The think about oil, folks, is that it's never sourced to just one company. You can choose to not buy Citgo; but chances are pretty good that you're still putting Venezuelan gas in your car ... especially if you choose to go to a mom & pop place. I believe that Exxon is Venezuelan-free at the moment; but that's only because of a legal dispute.

    Yes, this is one of the hidden truths about oil companies. Actually, it's just something no one thinks about. The oil from different companies is all processed together to make the gasoline, diesel or heating oil. It's like other mass produced products sold to the public such as coffee does anyone really believe that all the beans from Folgers come from one country?
