cool ra-ul

help fight the already skyrocketing gas prices

Recommended Posts

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.

 

PLEASE HOLD OUT UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES TO THE $1.30 RANGE AND

KEEP THEM DOWN. THIS CAN REALLY WORK.

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.

We ought to be paying more for gas anyway. Why do you think most middle eastern nations hate us?

there aren't even exxon or mobil gas stations anywhere near where i live..........

 

 

all bp or shell

 

 

 

 

 

on a different note i'd like to make a reference to my friend's idiocy.

we were watching a french movie called "fatgirl" in which they stop at a gas station....... my friend pointed (like i am not already looking at the screen) and stated "hey cool they have B.P.s over there too". to which i responded "ahem, british petrolium, British.... ahem... as in not American........."
