Gasoline Made In America

Kwik Fill, Citgo, and Keystone, Red Apple, or Country Fair.brands.
Why Not Buy American.

The United Refining Company is an oil company in Warren, Pennsylvania. The company operates an oil refinery in Warren that can process 70,000 barrels of oil into gasoline, diesel fuel and other petroleum distillates per day.[2] It distributes gasoline under the Kwik Fill, Citgo, and Keystone brands.

Don't know about the others, but CItgo is owned by Petróleos de Venezuela, S.A (The National Oil Company of Venezuela) so while it may be refined here, the money ends up in the hands of an "elected" dictator who hates America.

Used to have two citgo's in town. When Chavez called our prez names or whatever he did, they were removed immediately. Being in a military/gov't town, that don't play well, or at least didn't then. Both stations shut down within two weeks, now chevrons.

70k a day is only supporting stations thats close to it. The plant i work in (previously valero) supplied all kinds of different stations. Ststions buy whatever is local to them for the most part. Less transportation charges

There is an interesting article on Fact Check.org. They are addressing an e-mail I am sure most of you have seen about "Where to buy American Gasoline"
It's hard to make sure you are getting Amarican gas. Just because they don't import the crude oil, doesn't mean the gas they buy from a refinery isn't from another country.

I'm pretty sure Sunoco is American as well. I know they refine it here, I'm not sure where the crude comes from.

Chavez might be a ding dong, but he also provides free heating oil to the N.E. for the past few winters.
The Feds didn't want it, but some local states took it and used it to help those in need.
