(Tulsa-AP) -- Tulsa Mayor Bill LaFortune and Congressman John Sullivan will have to wait until Thursday to make their pitches to keep Citgo in Tulsa.

Yesterday's planned meeting with Citgo Petroleum Corporation leaders was delayed. Sullivan and LaFortune say there were some scheduling conflicts.

Citgo revealed last week it is considering moving its headquarters to Houston.

The nation's fourth-largest gasoline retailer plans to make a decision by the end of the year.

LaFortune and Sullivan say they continue to look forward to meeting with Citgo leaders. Governor Henry also says he hopes to meet with Citgo.
