Coming to a gas station near you. Chavez has stated that he is pulling out of the World bank and is trying to stop all oil supply to the USA. Any thoughts on this?? I dont know the details on it just heard it while flipping through radio stations. I say we go in and take his oil. Heck all the Dems think we went to war for oil, might as well show them what a war about oil is all about!! We could make Venezuela a state!! Or tap into all the oil in Alaska! DUUUUU. I am about sick of this oil stuff. We got the largest coal reserve in the world and coal can be transformed into a limitless supply of oil. Coupled with Alaskas oil we have NO need for foreign oil. When will we ever learn?

The only reason we import is because getting oil from them is cheaper and that way they will run out first and we will still have all of our reserves.
If we really wanted cheap oil we would have millions of rigs 10 miles off either side of the west and east coast. Which is where some of the largest and cheapest oil reserves are.

I don't know about $10 a gallon, but I'm sure since this announcement was made that gas will be up another 5-7 cents by the end of the day

Thats my point with our coal reserves, Off shore, and Alaskan oil we will never run out of oil. No need to see if they run out first. Who cares. If we dont buy it that leaves Chavez and the middle east to have war over who supplies China with oil. Screw them let them starve sitting on their oil. We have plenty if we could shut the greenies from cali. up.

It is a zero sum game in a World market. The supply is what it is and so is the demand. As long as his oil is on the market it will not influence the world price whether it is sold to us or another country. He will, however hurt himself as he has direct marketing of refined products through CITGO which I assume he would pull. In addition, some of his reserves are very heavy crude and not economical to extract at below $60 per barrel. That is one reason he wants to make as much noise as possible to destabilize world markets. They do not possess the technical expertise to keep operating those particular fields over time so he is hurting himself long-term by nationalizing the oil industry.

I have boycotted Citgo for about 2-3 years now, for both fuel and sundries. I would suggest that all Titan Talk members rally and do the same.

Time for the American Terrorists to attack these A holes that want to attack us!! LOL Yeah 0 sum game, unless he stops selling period -which sooner or later if him and Iran D-head figure this out and stop for - say 1 month-then probably 5-6 is possible in the near future.

Don't forget - Some theories out there that :Japan bombed us in WWII because we cut off their oil. They want trouble, we'll give them trouble eventually.

the economies of Venezuela and Iran are one trick ponies, without oil they have nothing, $0 income, well Iran will still have carpets and door matts, whoopdeedoo. Chavez is not going to turn off the taps, he'll collapse from within if he does. In the long run he needs us more then we need him.

I've had enough! It's not even about the oil, I'm tired of idiots and insanos trying to prove they have power over us. Nothing says power like a mushroom cloud.

Here is a good article that touches on how Chavez might shoot himself in his own foot. It might not be good business for oil companies if they do not come to terms with Chavez's demands and profit taking:

Good read. I hope that SOB Chavez gets what he deserves. I would be willing to take a hit in the pocket book for awhile to sink that bastid!

I have been doing the Citgo Boycott for a while. My uncle works in the oil industry and he talks about how all the people he knows hate the guy.
