    Default Terror-free Gas?

    Ok, now I am wondering how they are going to work this one out? Other than buying from local production (which does not create fuel for domestic purchase...??) who can provide?

    Gas Station To Offer 'Terror-Free' Oil. February Grand Opening Planned

    OMAHA, Neb. -- Area drivers will soon be able to fill up with gasoline made from "terror-free oil."

    KETV in Omaha reports that a gas station is about to open near 129th and Q streets named Terror Free Oil, and the idea is to offer consumers petroleum products from countries that do not sponsor terror.

    The gas station is associated with the Terror-Free Oil Initiative. The group's objective is to encourage Americans to buy gasoline that originated from countries that do not export or finance terrorism. A representative said that Omaha's will be the first of several terror-free oil gas stations to open across the country.

    "The terror-free oil initiative is dedicated to encouraging Americans to buy gasoline that originated from countries that do not export or finance terrorism," according to the group's Web site.

    Chris Decker, professor of economics with the University of Nebraska-Omaha, said the idea may make for good marketing.

    "From a business perspective, it's kind of a neat way to differentiate yourself from the competition. To me, that sounds an awful lot like what we in environmental economics refer to as eco-labeling. Like, when you purchase a can of tuna with a symbol that there was no harm to dolphins to catch the tuna," Decker said.

    Will drivers make a special trip? Mary Ann Buscher said the station got her attention, with its bright red, white and blue advertising, but she isn't sure when or if she'll stop there.

    "I wouldn't go out of my way to go there, probably. No, I wouldn't," she said.

    The grand opening is Feb. 12.

    Why does this sound more like a Beano marketing ploy?
