I have been searching for the last 20-30 min. to find out where Kroger buys it's gas, and I can not find it anywhere.I ran upon this site and I would love to know myself!!!!
I just received an email with information on where you can find out this type of information. Visit the department of energy at http://www.eia.doe.gov/ . They have a plethora of reports, which I am scanning over now. If you see something, post it, as I am curious as well. Everything the US corporations do these days revolves around the bottom line and the stockholder. I am incensed that these major businesses will not pay even minimum wage for a customer service call, but have no problem paying .25 cents an hour to someone overseas. I say take care of our own first. So...I'm off to buy local gas, whether I pay a bit more or not. 10 cents a gallon at Kroger is only about $8 a month for me. I'll gladly donate that to the cause.

What's the difference? Gas is gas is gas. It's like asking which fries are better McDonalds North or South. Get something that resembles a life people.

WHERE TO BUY AMERICAN GASOLINE...

Gas rationing in the 70's worked even though we grumbled about it.

It might
even have been good for us!
Are you aware that the Saudis are
boycotting American products? In
addition, they are gouging us on oil prices.

Shouldn't we return the favor? Can't we take control of our own destiny and
let these giant oil importers know who REALLY generates their profits, their
livings? How about leaving American Dollars in America and reduce the
import/export deficit?

An appealing remedy might be to boycott their GAS.

Every time you fill up
your car you can avoid putting more money into the coffers of Saudi Arabia .

Just purchase gas from companies that don't import their oil from the
Saudis.

Nothing is more frustrating than the feeling that every time I fill up my
tank, I'm sending my money to people who I get the impression want me, my
family and my friends dead.

The following gas companies import Middle Eastern oil:
Shell.......... 205,742,000 barrels
Chevron/Texaco.......... 144,332,000 barrels
Exxon /Mobil.......... 130,082,000 barrels
Marathon/Speedway.......... 117,740,000 barrels
Amoco.......... 62,231,000 barrels

And CITGO oil is imported from Venezuela by Dictator Hugo Chavez who hates
America and openly avows our economic destruction!(We pay Chavez's regime
nearly $10 Billion per year in oil revenues!)

The U.S. currently imports 5,517,000 barrels of crude oil per day from OPEC.

If you do the math at $100 per barrel, that's over $550 million PER DAY
($200 BILLION per year!) handed over to OPEC, many of whose members are our
confirmed enemies!!!!! It won't stop here - oil prices could go to $200 a
barrel or higher if we keep buying their product.

Kroger gas comes from Shell.

Here are some large companies that do not import Middle Eastern oil:
Sunoco.......... 0 barrels
Conoco.......... 0 barrels
Sinclair.......... 0 barrels
BP / Phillips.......... 0 barrels
Hess.......... 0 barrels
ARC0.......... 0 barrels
Maverick.......... 0 barrels
Flying J.......... 0 barrels
Valero.......... 0 barrels
Murphy Oil USA *......... 0 barrels

*Sold at Wal-Mart , gas is from South Arkansas and fully USA owned and
produced.
Not only that but they give scholarships to all children in
their town who finish high school and are legal US citizens.. All of this
information is available from the U.S.

Department of Energy and each company
is required to state where they get their oil and how much they
are
importing.

But to have a real impact, we need to reach literally millions of gas buyers
With the help of the internet, it's really simple to do.

Now, don't wimp
out at this point....keep reading and I'll explain how simple it is to reach
millions of people!!

I'm sending this note to about thirty
people.

If each of you send it to at
only ten more (30 x 10 = 300)....and those 300 send it to at least ten more
(300 x 10 = 3,000)....and so on, by the time the message reaches the sixth
generation of people, we will have reached over THREE MILLION
consumers!!!!!!!

If those three million get excited and pass this on to ten friends each,
then 30 million people will have been contacted! If
it goes one level
further, you guessed it...THREE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE-the entire population
of the United States of America !!!!

Again, all you have to do is forward this message to 10 people.

How long
would that really take you? If each of us sends this e-mail out to ten more
people, within one day all 300 MILLION people could theoretically be
contacted during the next eight
days!

I've been doing the same thing! Get the gift cards and you get 10% free + I have the 123 Master card where I already get 15 cents off per gallon! Kroger is the ONLY way to go right now.

Kroger like any unbranded station, will source their fuel from who has the best deal. Wal-mart fuel stations are more than likely owned and operated by Murphy Oil USA Inc. I would admit that Kroger does have a nice program in place, offering large discounts depending on the amount of money you spend at their store each month. I do find that for the most part, this is a creative marketing on their part. In the Ohio market Kroger Fuel consistently prices themselves 3 to 5 cents higher than the competition. So if all you are getting is the 3 cent discount, you are actually not saving any money. I also find their groceries to be much higher than Wal-Mart. If you get something at Kroger on sale it is a terrific deal, but on the flip side, normal retail prices for most packaged goods are far more expensive. So at the end of the day, the better choice in my opinion is Murphy USA (Wal-mart).

I use Kroger gas, better quality and I have to use premium and kroger has 93 octane, only a few places in somerset carry the 93 octane. Besides the prices are usually the same or close to walmart and since we buy our groceries there we always get the 10 cents off.

FYI walmart gas has not always came from S. Arkansas as stated above. Before our refinary shut down, Somerset Gas supplied the gas to many Murphy's oil, including ours in Somerset. The Drivers of the trucks were employed by the Somerset refinery but had to wear Murphy's oil shirts and drive murphy's trucks because murphys oil(or somerset) did not want people to know they used somerset gas.
Also in Eurotuner magazine ranked Somerst refinery's gas as top 10 in the US because of how clean it was and the types of detergents used in it was better for cars.
