Where Will You Buy Your Gas This Weekend?
Unlike millions of Americans, I'm lucky enough to be surrounded by excellent transportation and only drive when absolutely necessary. For those of you who have no choice but to drive on a regular basis and are going away for the long weekend, check out this Buyblue.org list of oil company donations to political parties. Only one company, Amerada Hess, gives to Democrats. The rest give to Republicans. Hey, thanks for the $10.7 billion in tax breaks we didn't need.
Citgo - $2,500 to Republicans (click here to read about the Citgo BUY-cott)
Shell - $86,000 to Republcians
BP (Beyond Petroleum - brilliant marketing name) - $209,498 to Republicans
ConocoPhilips - $276,500 to Republicans
Chevron - $383,800 to Republicans
And the winner is...
Exxon Mobil - $779,964 to Republicans
Have a good weekend and drive safely...
