I can live with that.
Something to think about seriously--are we going to let the gas companys get away with it again??? This was E-MAILED to me.
I hear we are going to hit close to $3.00 a gallon by the summer. Want
gasoline prices to come down? We need to take some united,
intelligent action. Phillip Hollsworth, offered this good idea: This
makes MUCH MORE SENSE than the "don't buy gas on a certain day"
campaign that was going around last year. The oil companies just laughed
at that because they knew we wouldn't continue to "hurt" ourselves by
refusing to buy gas. It was more of an inconvenience to us than it was a
problem for them. BUT, whoever thought of this idea, has come up with a
plan that can really work. Please read it and join with us!
By now you're probably thinking gasoline priced at about $1.50 is super
cheap. Me too! It is currently $1.97 for regular unleaded in my town.
Now that the oil companies and the OPEC nations have conditioned us to
think that the cost of a gallon of gas is CHEAP at$1.50-$1.75 we need to
take aggressive action to teach them that BUYERS control the marketplace
....not sellers. With the price of gasoline going up more each day, we
consumers need to take action. The only way we are going to see the
price of gas come down is if we hit someone in the pocketbook by not
purchasing THEIR gas!! And we can do that WITHOUT hurting ourselves.
Since we all rely on our cars, we can't just stop buying gas. But we
CAN have an impact on gas prices if we all act together to force a price
war. Here's the idea:
For the rest of this year, starting as soon after April 1st as possible,
DON"T purchase ANY gasoline from the two biggest companies (which now
are one), EXXON and MOBIL.
If they are not selling any gas, they will be inclined to reduce their
prices. If they reduce their prices, the other companies will have to
But to have an impact, we need to reach literally millions of Exxon and
Mobil gas buyers. It's really simple to do!! Now, don't whimp out at
this point...keep reading and I'll explain how simple it is to reach
millions of people!! .
I am sending this note to about thirty people. If each of them send it
to 10 more (30 x 10 = 300) and those 300 send it to at 10 more (300 x
10= 3,000) ... and so on, by the time this message reaches the sixth
generation of people, we will
have reached over 3 MILLION consumers!
If those three million get excited and pass this on to ten friends each,
then 30 million people will have been contacted! If it goes only one
level further, you guessed it.....THREE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE!!!.
All you have to do is send this to ten people. That's all. (If you don't
understand how we can reach 300 million and all you have to do is send
this to 10 people.... well, there it is, in black and white, so trust me
on this one.)
How long would all that take? If each of us sends this email out to
ten more people within one day of receipt, all 300 MI LLION people could
conceivably be contacted within the next 8 days. I'll bet you didn't
think you and I had that much potential, did you? Acting together we can
make a difference. If this makes sense to you, please pass this
PLEASE GIVE IT A TRY UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES AND KEEP THEM DOWN.
THIS CAN REALLY WORK IF WE DON'T DELETE THIS AND KEEP IT GOING. DO IT
NOW, WHILE IT IS IN FRONT OF YOU. WE HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE AND WE'VE
EVERYTHING TO GAIN AND START IT YOURSELF WITH YOUR NEXT FILL-UP.
