We have performed an abundance analysis of six Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) F supergiants, based on infrared photometry and echelle spectra obtained from CTIO. We find a real dispersion in Fe/H values, indicating that the LMC is inhomogeneous. Oxygen abundances appear to be equal in all six stars, resulting in a steep O/Fe slope with Fe/H. Other element abundances appear near normal, although there is a hint of a small enhancement of second s-process peak elements. Iron abundances are probably affected by non-LTE; this does not change our conclusions concerning oxygen.
