Terror-Free Oil?

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Money, The War On Terrorism

That’s what one gas station in Omaha is saying they’ll offer. Certainly a novel idea, but could it go nationwide?

From newsnet5.com:

KETV in Omaha reports that a gas station is about to open near 129th and Q streets named Terror Free Oil, and the idea is to offer consumers petroleum products from countries that do not sponsor terror.

The gas station is associated with the Terror-Free Oil Initiative. The group’s objective is to encourage Americans to buy gasoline that originated from countries that do not export or finance terrorism. A representative said that Omaha’s will be the first of several terror-free oil gas stations to open across the country.

“The terror-free oil initiative is dedicated to encouraging Americans to buy gasoline that originated from countries that do not export or finance terrorism,” according to the group’s Web site.

Terror-Free Oil Initiative’s website can be found here. Apparently Sinclair stations and Flying J gas stations do not import oil from the Middle East. So just in case you happen upon one of these gas stations (I know of two in Kansas City), stop on by and fill up.

    Perhaps someone should introduce these folks to the detail that oil is a fungible commodity. (Look it up.) So buying “Terror-Free Oil” may make you feel good, but will do absolutely nothing to reduce the economic position of those who use oil money to support terrorists.

    If you really, really want to do something to hurt the oil-funded terrorists, go out and replace your SUV with something that gets significantly better gas mileage. And see also Charles Krauthammer’s column in today’s Washington Post.

    Getting a different car will help. Just a heads up the
    Sinclair Station off of I-29 and 72nd street
    still pumps the gas for you, cleans you windshield, checks your oil and puts air in your tires. Their gas is the same price sometime cheaper and they are really nice folks.

    Unsoliciated Suggestion.

    The black monster that engulfed from the bowels of the earth, excruciating and knocking-down people on the streets, with the Deadly Tetra Ethyl Lead (TEL) that contain in fossil fuel, and now, replacing it with Methylcyclopentadienyl Manganese Tricarbonyl (MMT) if not with Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ester (MTBE) that contaminates ground water.

    Why not Enkonize your engines?

    Enkoco is not a bio-fuel and as a fuel additives — as described by legislators.

    Enkoco invites expats would-be business partners and international product distributors.

    I completely agree with the following: Sources of income for all terrorists need to be identified and eliminated. If anything I buy FUNDS terrorist organizations in any way, I will stop buying it immediately.

    I do not agree with the following: ‘All countries in the middle-east fund terrorism’ or ‘Oil companies in the middle-east fund terrorism’.

    Reason: By the logic of ‘Terror Free Oil’, people should stop funding the US Army since Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols (Oklahoma City Bombing) since both of those were US Army Veterans.

    The US Army actually consists of some very decent people — and so does Saudi Arabia and other middle eastern countries. Let me add: the middle east is a victim of these terrible terrorists as much as the US.
