CITGO GAS
NAME CHANGE



NOTE: Chavez is the foreign owner of Citgo gas stations
in the US , and he has openly stated that he is against
all Americans and only wishes them death and destruction.

However, he is willing to have his gas stations here in
America and his goal is to get rich off Americans...
See the rest below...

CITGO Beginning Change of Name To PETRO EXPRESS

VERY IMPORTANT

I am forwarding this, because Chavez is starting
to feel the loss of revenue from his holdings.
He substantially OWNS CITGO

This is a very important move that everyone
should be aware.

ANNOUNCED JUST RECENTLY, CITGO, BEING
AWARE THAT SALES ARE DOWN DUE TO U.S.
(CUSTOMERS NOT WANTING TO BUY FROM
"CHAVEZ"), HAVE STARTED TO CHANGE THE
NAME OF SOME OF THEIR LOCATIONS, TO:
"PETRO EXPRESS"


DO NOT BUY FROM "PETRO EXPRESS"!
"PETRO EXPRESS" IS ALSO 100% OWNED BY "CHAVEZ" .

PLEASE KEEP THIS MEMO GOING SO EVERYONE
KNOWS WHAT IS HAPPENING.

wrong forum should be gng

1) What does this have to do with food?

Scroll down.

In October 2006, the following e-mail about Citgo and Petro Express began circulating:

CITGO, BEING AWARE THAT GASOLINE SALES ARE DOWN DUE TO U.S. CUSTOMERS NOT WANTING TO BUY FROM "CHAVEZ".... HAVE BEGUN CHANGING THE NAME OF SOME OF THEIR CIRCLE K STORES IN TEXAS & OKLAHOMA...AND POSSIBLY OTHER PLACES AS WELL, TO: "PETRO EXPRESS"
<BR><BR>
THEREFORE, DO NOT BUY FROM "PETRO EXPRESS", ...NOR CITGO....
<BR><BR>
"PETRO EXPRESS" IS ALSO 100% OWNED BY "CHAVEZ" ....

Both <A HREF="http://www.circlek.com/" TARGET=circle>Circle K</A> and <A HREF="http://www.petroexpress.com/aboutus.html" TARGET=petro>Petro Express</A> are privately-owned chains of convenience stores, the former an international property of Quebec-based Alimentation Couche-Tard, and the latter based in Charlotte, North Carolina. Neither is owned by Citgo or the Venezuela government. Although Petro Express outlets did sell Citgo gasoline, the company announced in <NOBR>October 2006</NOBR> that the chain was phasing out sales of Citgo Petroleum Corp. gasoline and by 2007 would no longer be vending the brand.

<BR><BR>
It is not uncommon for independent stations and chains to switch fuel suppliers from time to time. Occurrences of independents dropping Citgo in favor of other suppliers are often misinterpreted by the public as attempts on Citgo's part to "switch names" in order to fool consumers into continuing to purchase Citgo gasoline.
