A state legislator wants Citgo, Venezuela's government-owned oil company, kicked off Florida's Turnpike in retaliation for comments that county's leader made about President Bush at the United Nations last week. Rep. Adam Hasner wrote a letter to Florida Department of Transportation Secretary Denver Stutler asking whether the state could cancel Citgo's exclusive contract to sell fuel at turnpike service stations. "We're reviewing the letter," said DOT spokesman Dick Kane said. Hasner said transportation officials were looking into the legal ramifications of breaking the contract. Citgo has operated seven service stations at 45-mile intervals along the 312-mile turnpike since 1994.
