CNNMoney: 7-Eleven drops Chavez oil deal

Which takes you to this:

7-Eleven drops Citgo, denies political angle
Retailer replaced Venezuelan oil company with its own brand after ‘devil’ speech

but then says this:

7-Eleven Inc. said on Wednesday the war of words between Venezuela’s leftist government and the Bush administration had no part in its decision to drop gasoline supplier Citgo Petroleum Corp., which is owned by Venezuela’s state oil company.

The contract expires on Sept. 30, 7-Eleven spokeswoman Margaret Chabris said, and the decision was made long before Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez called U.S. President George W. Bush “the devil” last week.

“People are making it out to be more than it is,” Chabris told Reuters.

Like CNN apparently…
