BUY CITGO Gas – Join the BUY-cott!
Gasoline costs have risen – and not just by the price of filling up your tank. If you can’t walk or bicycle and mass transit isn’t there for you then make a difference when you buy gasoline for your car.
Of all the top oil producing countries in the world, only one is a democracy with a president who was elected on a platform of using his nation’s oil-revenue to benefit the poor. The country is Venezuela. The President is Hugo Chavez. Citgo is a U.S. refining and marketing firm that is a wholly owned subsidiary of Venezuela’s state owned oil company. By buying your gasoline at Citgo you are contributing to the billions of dollars that Venezuela’s democratic government is using to provide health care, literacy and education, and subsidized food for the majority of Venezuelans. He is making a difference in Venezuela and in Latin America with the oil profits and you can help.
Instead of using government to help the rich and corporate interests, Hugo Chavez is using the resources and oil revenue of his government to help the poor in Venezuela and other Latin American countries. So you can help when you buy gas – think about who makes the profits, think about what they do with them and then decide . . .
CCPJ has adopted the CITGO BUY-cott as an effort worth promoting in the Central Connecticut area.
