    This makes more sense then the silly "Don't Buy Mobil Gas" b.s. that went around last time fuel
    prices went up. A couple of extra points to consider along with this message:
    - A lot of the "good" companies listed have most of their stations east of CA, so us "Left Coasties"
    should go for ARCO (owned by BP/Phillps)
    - Park the SUV and use a bike. Better for you AND the economy.
    - Carpool: Remember, when you ride alone, you ride with bin Laden. (adjusted from the WW II gas
    rationing poster "When you ride alone, you ride with Hitler"

    So let's send a message....

    I addition to the rest of your post being incorrect, attitudes like this are what have caused every
    case of genocide in history.

    Just because it was arabs, or muslims, or jews, or christians or russians or french or whomever
    (you get the point) that did something to irk you or others does not mean that the whole group
    is in error.

    This is exactly the kind of ignorance that killed 6 million jews from 1942-45. Get your head out of
    your ass and start thinking for yourself.

    SUV = gets me to far off locations, on and off road fast, tows stuff pretty well, leavesmany
    passenger cars in the dust, and is very safe.

    Bonus points for pissing off the rabid anti-SUV loons.
