ALQ has used fuel tankers in the past to blow stuff up.
Since they think America is just after OIL in the middle east, they use the term Black for OIL and death because it brings death to both people.
So obviously it is somehow connected to oil, either its production center, or distribution, or retail point of consumption (gas stations) or to be
used as a weapon, the very thing the goverment is after from Saudi Arabi, Iraq etc will be used against the goverment as a weapon
OBL seems to like symbolizim and this would hit at the heart of the american public. Make them panic to fill up their car, always looking over their
shoulder at Fuel Tankers etc.
Hell it might even drive the price of gas down....
