Transnational: Put a tiger in your tank… which tank?

Esso in Antigua Guatemala

The slogan for Esso is Put a tiger in your tank; here with a twist. Esso is one of the brands of ExxonMobil. I am sure most of you have heard of these two brands. Read the case against Esso and what Google found.

Wow! I can not believe the amount of web sites and organizations that have been created to oppose this transnational corporation; I leave you with three links: Stop Esso, Exxon Secrets, Exxon Crimes.

Also, Sompopo, one of the regular visitors to this site, wrote recently about a documentary called What if the oil runs out? on Discovery Channel. He recommends this program very highly and I am planning to watch it next time it comes to the Discovery Channel Latin America. It is not on yet.

I am most interested in what you have to say about Esso and Exxon! What’s your take on Esso?

  • if all the oil runs out we will certainly have a different life. the thing that i noticed about your photo only one gas pump. We live in a small population area compared to most places in out country but the gas stations here have no less than 8 pumps. in the UK they pay about $4.50 for a gallon of gas. we had been paying about $2.90 until the election drew near and now it is about $2.19. when we had the gas shortage in the 1980’s everyone started buying small gas saver cars but in the last 7 years everyone has gone back to the big gas hog cars.i think we need to do like the Guatemalas who move here ride bikes or walk.

  • Me, I reckon all the big companies are doing something bad, but you could do your head in trying to avoid all of them. Mind you, we didn’t think of that at all when we kids all had Esso tiger tails that went with the slogan and that they gave away WAY back in the 60’s. 🙂

  • It’s been a long time since I’ve seen an Esso station. Interesting.

  • Esso, put a tiger in your tank! This was a slogan we had in France back when I was a kid…. more than thirty years ago !!! I believe the sooner we learn to do with less oil, the better. I can’t believe that alternative research is so systematically curtailed. Powerful people behind the scenes…

  • That slogan was used long time ago in Singapore too. But now the slogan used is “We are drivers too”.
