    And do NOT buy your gasoline at Citgo stations! Many 7-11 stores around the country use Citgo - please do boycott this gas as it's wholly-owned by Hugo Chavez..

    http://www.citgo.com/WebOther/CommunityInvolvement/HeartToHearths.pdf

    The company is owned by PDV America, Inc., an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of Petróleos de Venezuela, S.A., the national oil company of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.

    In August, 1983, CITGO was sold to The Southland Corporation to provide an assured supply of gasoline to Southland's 7-Eleven convenience store chain.

    In September, 1986, Southland sold a 50 percent interest in CITGO to Petróleos de Venezuela, S.A. (PDVSA), the national oil company of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. PDVSA acquired the remaining half of CITGO in January, 1990. With a secure and ample supply of crude oil, CITGO quickly became a major force in the energy arena.

    Not a boycott person, but this one I’ll go along with.
    I think it will work too.

    Ditto with the " not a boycott person" but I can easily avoid doing business at Citgo and plan to. A small step to stick it to Hugo. He's a dick.

    Let's just give him massive manufacturing contracts. What's wrong with that? That will keep him happy so he won't be mean.

    Why should the policy be different? if it's such a great approach with china, it should work here too. Right?

    When the drunk Captain of the Exxon Valdez screwed up and Exxon raised the pump price to cover the costs of clean-up etc, I stopped buying from them, haven’t since. Screw me on gotta have it, but not on your mistakes.

    I don’t buy at Citco so it’ll be very easy for me.

    Do we actually care this much about the words of a nonsensical, attention-craving dictator?

    This country needs to lighten up, I never realized I share this land with so many whiney prima donnas. Poor owners of citgo stations, a crazy bastard goes off the deep end and suddenly business sucks because some Americans can't take a little criticism. I bet you Bush even had a laugh at the insanity of Chavez's statements.

    Well America is free, 1549. So if people want to boycott, then boycott they shall. I don't believe boycotts work personally. Chavez will never feel the financial impact. He's richer then rich can be.

    I do find it funny though that I live in a country where so many whiney prima donas (proffesors, union workers, Liberal leaders, etc) are willing to invite a 3rd world dictator who basically enslaves his people to speak to America about our human rights violations.
