    pulled this form streetracing.org I apologize if this has been posted before, but just in case Im going to add it on.

    This is a possible solution to gas prices, I don't really fall into any, but this seems to have some potential.

    It will be extra hard for me since I only use Mobil, but I dont see a problem to switching to Chevron for awhile.

    Anyway please read!!

    Rumor has it that gas prices are going to hit close to $3.00 a gallon
    by the summer Want gasoline prices to come down? We need to take some
    intelligent, united action.

    Phillip Hollsworth, offered this good idea, which makes MUCH MORE
    SENSE than the "don't buy gas on a certain day" campaign that was going
    around last April or May!

    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. How? 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, 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 follow suit.
    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 wimp out on me
    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 you send it
    to at least ten more (30 x 10 = 300)...and those 300 send it to at
    least ten more(300 x 10 = 3,000) ... and so on, by the time the
    message reaches the sixth generation of people, we will have reached
    over THREE 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 one level further, you guessed it..... THREE
    HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE!!! Again,all You have to do is send this to 10
    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, let's
    face it, you just aren't a mathematician. But I am... 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 MILLION 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
    message on.

    You folks just don't understand....this will never, ever work. Learn more about the oil industry and try again. I'm in favor of people taking power away from corporations, but this isn't the way.
