If you’re wondering: I’ll be going out of my way to avoid Citgo until the end of time.

A lot of folks don’t seem to be pleased Citgo placed the American, Texas and Citgo flags all at half-staff outside the refinery on Nueces Bay Boulevard this morning.

The company is a subsidiary of the Venezuelan national oil company. In case you weren’t aware, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez died yesterday following a lengthly battle with cancer.

Citgo released the following statement on death of Chavez on Tuesday:

“President Hugo Ch├ívez of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela leaves behind a legacy of support for the underprivileged and promotion of social justice that transcends geographical boundaries. We at Citgo Petroleum Corporation are deeply saddened by the news of his passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and the people of Venezuela in this time of grief.”

More about Citgo’s praise for a thug at the link.

Glad there's no Citgos here in Toledo (at least, I haven't seen any.)
