You might get a kick out of where Valero actually get their company name from.

You can look it up on their company page or the internet.

True or not I don't know.
Me thinks the friend has it confused with Citgo.

Citgo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I believe after reading that that she is wrong, but would someone else please tell her that?

Untrue. Valero is HQ'd in San Antonio, TX. Very ethical company with very high standards. They give huge amounts to children based charities.

Chavez had a controlling interest in Venezuelan owned Citgo.

Had a similar incident with the gas pump handle being set to full open at an Exxon station. Kids around here were doing it as a prank. I'd love to catch 'em doing it one day...
