Joe no can of worms on that topic. I spent *many* years as an operation superintendent for deep sea vessels and the issue of no back haul to asia has been a problem for **decades**! There are back hauls that do happen but they are mostly forest products - pulp and wood products that usually go via a bulk vessel rather than container ship - what is containerized usually just gets put on deck of the bulk carrier. But forest products export is another segment of export from N/A that is declining.

The OP has found another e-mail urban legend. Isn't it amazing how people believe everything that shows up in their inbox?

Anyway, Snopes.com is a great place to get the truth. Here's the explanation on the above:

Chevron/Texaco..................... 144,332,000 barrels
Exxon /Mobil........................ 130,082,000 barrels
Marathon/Speedway............. 117,740,000 barrels
Amoco................................... 62,231,000 barrels

Here are some large companies THAT DO NOT import Middle Eastern oil:
Sunoco..........................0 barrels
Conoco.........................0 barrels
0ASinclair.....................0 barrels
BP / Phillips................. 0 barrels
Hess..............................0 barrels
ARC0.............................0 barrels
Maverick........................0 barrels
Flying J.........................0 barrels
Valero..........................0 barrels
Kwik Fill.......................0 barrels
Murphy Oil USA *.........0 barrels
Something to think about when you fill up.
Check out Urban Legends at: Gas Boycott (Saudi / Middle Eastern Oil) - Urban Legends

As other suggest this list may not be all that correct. The list has been floating around since at least 2001 and at the time it first made the rounds there was evidence it was incorrect.

Urban legions suggest in part that only three of the companies on the list for allegedly not importing Middle Eastern oil belong on the list: Sinclair, Sunoco and Hess. Suspect that today that may well also be out of date.

Might suprise a few that today it is in fact Canada who is the biggest supplier of oil to the USA (along with power and water to the US its our biggest export). Its our way of being a good neighbour and balancing things out due to all the great USA manufactured goods we import.

Hi: All...Canada has a quota to fill under NAFTA. If we don't use our supplies we have to buy them somewhere else!!! I hope this doesn't qualify as a closer.

I had a Target credit card so I could get the extra savings they offered, that is until I called their customer service line and found out they outsource overseas, India I think.

I guess there are always the microbreweries. And domestic wineries, too. Beer and wine will never be as fungible as gasoline, hopefully... the varieties are nice.

USA made

We have a locally owned and operated brewry company here in the Kansas Ciry area. It is called Boulevard Beer-very good variety of beer.

We try to buy American made -if at all possible. I just wish I could see the `made in America` tag on more items.

Having 2 family members lose their jobs to out-sourcing-I refuse to talk to anyone from a foreign country-when i am needing assistance and will complain to the store or company that sent my call to another country.

I know Americans can make all these products much better than they are now made-in China, Japan and so on.

We were on vacation up north last summer and we saw a gas station with a sign--`American gasoline, American owned and operated`. Anyone know about this business.

Customer service outsourcing has pretty well become the norm for big corps. Even our largest telephone company has done the same here.

Way to go Ricky.......
A simple approach may be to mandatory put next to the price on an item where it was made,in the same size print as the price!....... This way we're not offending anybody as all are equal and we can choose how we want.
