    Sleven and Citgo
    Huh!

    From the Chicago Trib:
    "Convenience store operator 7-Eleven Inc. is dropping Venezuela-backed Citgo as its gasoline supplier at more than 2,100 locations and switching to its own brand of fuel."

    Private label gas! In fact, Poopie, if you opened your own chain of gas stations...lol, I'd shop there!

    This is almost as "straight-up" as the rebates deals from your favorite electronics store.

    Over the years, this has been a relationship of business partners similar to "family intermarriage".
    I suspect that you are seeing some cosmetic changes to offset the political downside of using crude from Venezuela.

    This is my understanding and is not binding on anyone..........especially after my labotomy.

    So who is going to barcode the oil to ensure we know it isn't venezualen oil> This is one of the STUPIDEST POLITICAL piece of Dung I have ever heard of.

    Lets discuss ECONOMICS of a product like OIL this product is FUNGIBLE meaning that if we don't buy DIRECTLY from Venezuala then the Saudi's will simply INCREASE thier prices and sell to us meanwhile Citgo will just sell to other countries (Like china who will buy from him) at the SAME prices

    My brother-in-law is always looking for a plan that will let him in on the ground floor. I told him about "Poopie Stops" and he wants to signup pronto. How about e-mailing him an application.

    I don't have a representation agreement inked with Poopie yet but I'll keep you posted. Thought of a logo type idea.

    7-11 sold Citgo to the Venezuealan's in the first place!

    Now, people are advocating boycotting a nearby democratic oil supplier (because their democratically elected leader called your democratically elected leader the devil - which probably pissed off Cheney more than you think - when your democratically elected leader has been calling their democratically elected leader a tyrant for many a year - hey but THAT'S OK!)

    So now, you'll have to go cap in hand to another country who AREN'T a democracy, who regularly have public executions, who supplied the majority of the 9/11 hijackers (who got into the country under a special sweet travel agency visa deal put in place by your President when he got into office) and whose rulers spend the oil money on buying gold-plated Mercedes instead of social programs for the poor. GOOD CHOICE!

    And Venezuela will just go and sell that oil to China who are fast becoming the world's biggest consumer of oil products.

    What's that saying about cutting off your nose...?

    We're the Customer. So in a nutshell, most people are going to think that's indeed OK!

    Just look at how many people diss the Networks and then expect favorable treatment!

    That aside, from what I understand, the Venezuelan guy is an antiCapitalistic weiner so IMO he can go jump off a pier for whatever reason we can drum up. This excuse is as good as any.

    You are right. That is why I say that this is just a cosmetic change.
    Companies involved are:
    7/11 USA
    7/11 Japan
    Southland Oil Co
    Tosoro Petroleum (Refinery in PR)(Not sure about the spelling)


    And Venezuela will just go and sell that oil to China who are fast becoming the world's biggest consumer of oil products.
    There is a minor logistics problem called "shipping". Big boats must go across the Atlantic and the Indian Ocean or around the tip of South America.

    There seems to be a grass roots move to boycott Citgo. More than likely the the change in the relationship of Venezuela and 7/11 is just an airbrush thing to pacify the USA public..

    By the way, for those who did not know........BP is British Petroleum.........Shell/Texaco is a British/Dutch company.

    I am about to get to involved with this subject.
    My disclaimer is that I am just passing on old information. I am through with this subject.

    LOL.... 7-11 pulling a smoke and mirrors PR spin off with some signage changes. Truth be told the socialists in Venezuela pulled the old commie move and nationalized (read as took over at gun point) all the Oil & Gas industries years ago. Basically the criminals running that 3rd world country seized billions in invested infra structure without paying a dime. They then use extorion to continue distribution while pocketing the profits for themselves and their cronies. Did more of the same this last year under the idiot Chavez and you can bet none of the poor in Venezuela will see their $2/day pay go to $20/day. The foam at the mouth Oil despots have us over the Oil barrel. Drill in Alaska and offshore in the Gulf of Mexico or walk and ride moped/bike.
