Default Looking for Domestic Gas Stations

Anyone have a list of Gas stations that are domestic oil only? Im curious if there are any. I would prefer to not give the middle east my money

From what I was led to believe, Hess and Sunoco are Domestic only.

Thanks in advance

As I recall, Hess is domestic. But I'm not sure how that can be guaranteed- I find it hard to believe that any large corporation has a fixed vertical structure anymore- from gound to pump. The raw material (crude) may, at times, come from the lowest cost source, even for a 'domestic' company.

Doesn't exist. There's been chain letters suggesting otherwise, but they are a hoax. The only truly domestic fuels are E85 and B100. Oil and even gasoline are open market commodity items.

I have always been told that BP uses no middle east oil.

Dunno how to confirm in though.

This site has some numbers for major companies...

The DOE gives this info...
