Why Buy Gas From CITGO?
The CITGO company is the wholly-owned U.S. subsidiary of Venezuela's state oil company PDVSA. By purchasing gas at CITGO you can help support the various assistance programs the company is providing poor Americans - something no U.S.-owned company is doing!After Hurricane Katrina, CITGO refineries on the Gulf Coast opened their doors to some 5,000 people seeking shelter, while U.S.-owned refineries kept people out. Venezuela, under the progressive leadership of President Hugo Chavez, immediately offered to send doctors, water purifiers, generators, and other emergency supplies as well as $1 million in aid. Much of this aid was refused - while the U.S. government abandoned tens of thousands of mostly black Americans to their fate.

                                           CITGO Facts
* The CITGO-Venezuela heating oil program will deliver more than 25 million gallons of fuel, at a 40 percent discount, to more than 100,000 needy households in the New York City area alone. The company will devote 5 percent of the delivery volume free of charge to homeless shelters during the heating season.

* Nationally, the program is targeting more than 100 million gallons to more than 400,000 households in 16 states, more than doubling the commitment made last year.

* The company recently gave $400,000 to help kick-start a new health clinic at Little Village Lawndale High School on Chicago's southwest side.
