The fight to save the Arctic Refuge is far from over. Arctic drilling may yet be prevented by voting against passage of the entire budget, of which Arctic drilling is a part. Please, thank Senators Feingold and Kohl for helping lead the charge to stop drilling for oil. Then boycott the companies that want to drill there:

Boycott these corporations and refuse to buy their gas until they promise not to drill in the Arctic Wildlife Refuge.

ExxonMobil: 972.444.1000 – Kwik Trip buys gas from Exxon Mobil, call them and let them know what you think 608.781.8988.

ChevronTexaco: 925.842.1000

Support these corporations that refuse to drill in the Arctic Wildlife Refuge:

BP: 281.366.5174 and 202.457.6603

ConocoPhillips: 303.649.4065

CITGO which gets nearly all its gas from Venezuela and the government of Victor Chavez. President Bush is once again doing everything he can to overturn the 3 times Democratically elected government in Venezuela.
