7-Eleven has announced that it is ceasing to use Citgo as its supplier of gasoline sold at its convenience stores. Citgo is owned by the Venezuelan government.

This article on Yahoo News goes into more detail on the topic.

Events like these show how high-profile purchasing decisions can actually be. Gotta love it!
