Hugo’s Gas

Today on my way to work, with my gas tank nearly empty, I passed up regular unleaded at Citgo for $2.39 a gallon, the cheapest I have seen. Why? Not because I like driving on fumes, but because I don’t want to subsidize the Venezuelan oil industry, run by Hugo Chavez.

Last week Chavez called our president the devil. This week we Americans should send our own message. Let’s not buy Venezuelan oil until Chavez’s corrupt regime is out.
