There is not one holiday, or special event that takes place, where Valero wants to be the headliner, or the top of the Sponsorship Board...if they continue to drown out the original cause, or meaning of these events, then they should lower their prices around town, not only for the locals who purchase tickets to these events, but for the tourists attending, also. Valero continually sponsors Golf Tournaments in our beautiful city, and should be ashamed to illustrate the marquis at all of their Valero stations, where tourists can see how gouging prices are a part of Valero's tactics, and who's to say they're not gouging the participants of the tournaments.?! I am not against them as a company, but against the fact that they have monopolized the city with their locations, and cannot give anything back to the community which supports them and their sponsorship.

Valero is named after Mission San Antonio de Valero (the formal name for the Alamo). It's owned by Valero, a US company.

CITGO is owned by PDVSA (Venezuela state oil company)

Someone sees a CITGO station change its brand of gas and all of the sudden people ass-u-me that all CITGO's changed the name.

I can't believe someone could be so stupid.

I think maybe one of the CITGO station managers is named Frankie Valero, so they use his name when they talk to him.
LOL!!

I just pulled up the San Antonio site, and there is a Valero in the top-10 lowest prices for the Metro area. Their price is within four cents of the lowest price anywhere in SA.
Sorry to ruin your rant.

So what you are saying on your drive by post is that you don't like Valero.

When I lived in Corpus I saw a lot of stations besides Valero stations.

All stations in San Antonio are Valero?
The Moore's, the CITGO, the Chevron, the Exxon, the Diamond
Shamrock, the HEB, the Mobil,the Shell, etc listed in the MSL are all really Valero in disguise?
Or are you saying those other stations exist, but Valero somehow forces everybody to buy from Valero instead at higher prices than everybody else?
