A 20 year contract with Citgo to provide gas for nearly half of the 5300 7 eleven stores will not be renewed. Take note station owners who are using the Venezuelan owned petroleum company. It's time to dump them and move to another brand, preferably something US based.
A Citgo boycott has been going on since Hugo Chavez's UN speech attacking and insulting not only President Bush, but Americans as a whole. The leftward leaning Chavez is pushing his country away from the US and towards Iran and they should be made to pay for it.

No more gasoline will be bought by 7-Eleven chain stores from Citgo, a subsidiary of state-run holding Petróleos de Venezuela (Pdvsa) based in the United States. Instead, the retail chain is to find another fuel supplier.
7-Eleven Inc., a group of stores of basic commodities with about 5,300 outlets across the United States, announced Wednesday that will buy gasoline from several vendors, including Tower Energy Group, located in Torrance, California; Sinclair Oil, of Salt Lake City and Houston firm Frontier Oil Corp, AP quoted.
