Boycott Watch 2002 Persian Gulf Oil Import Report
   Summary: Since the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks on September 11, 2001 there have been many calls for the boycotting of oil from Arab countries and particularly the Persian Gulf, including Saudi Arabia and Iraq. There have been conflicting reports about how much oil which gasoline retailer purchases from the Persian Gulf.
   Boycott Watch reviewed the US Department of Energy 2001 report of imported oil from the Persian Gulf. This report includes producers of non-gasoline petroleum products. We combined numbers where mergers occurred, and we encourage our readers to look at the source material from the DOE. Click here for the DOE source document. Boycott Watch also examined the web sites of each company and listed brands where possible.
