Where does your fuel come from?

What do you guys think if there was a federal law that required all gas pumps to display a sticker indicating where the oil in the product originated from?

Example:

The petroleum resources used in this product originated from the following countries:

Saudi Arabia...................................65%
Kuwait.............................................30%
Canada.............................................. 5%

  1. I don't think it'd work. If i remember that episode from the Discovery channel where they talked about how fuel is shipped across the country, basically all the fuel is dumped into the one big system. If BP wants to ship 1000 barrels out of california (just for example, no idea where they'd ship it from or two. so don't give me any lip. yeah, joel, i'm looking at you.) so, if they want to ship 1000 barrels from CA to NY, they dupm 1000 barrels into the system adn they can immediately withdrawel 1000 barrels in NY. Its not "THEIR" 1000 barrels of fuel. Its just fuel. Where it becomes "BP" fuel is after they mix in all their additives after they've received their requested shipment.

    So, there's no real telling where your station's fuel actually came from. Unless it was implied that BP uses 60% Saudi fuel, even if the stuff you're putting into your car was refined by shell which actually uses 80% saudi fuel.

    gets confusing. /shrugs.

    where's my flush lever?! that'll solve all the problems!

  3. I think I would rather see a label required to be placed on all tootsie pops that states the official number of licks required to reach the tootsie roll center.
