Gas War

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 intelligent,

united 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 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

&! nbsp;&nb sp; 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.

I know this is not nursing and I am sorry if I wasted your time, but I feel that we must do something about the price of gas.

Thank you for your time,

Matthew

Um, Mobile happens to be the cheapest gas around in my city. And they offer FREE baseball tickets in MD, PA, VA, DC to baltimore oriole games for 10 gallons of gas. Just 4 fillups and u get free tickets. So sorry can't do it!

Its also kinda spammish, and chain letter....which...never works!!! and you can get prosecuted if your an AOL member like I am and most people are, just some heads up people!

Oh, I got it...

They will SELL it to the OTHER gas companies....

They aren't some of the biggest/richest companies in the world for nothing.

Me too. I remember the days of "gas war" meaning who could eat the most broccoli and cauliflower, and blast each other out of the room 'naturally'.

Well, I can't stop depending on cars (I live in Southern California, afterall)

BUT, I do plan on buying a hybrid vehicle as soon as I'm done with nursing school (current car is paid for and I can't risk a new car note until more money is coming in.)

It's basically a combination of electric and regular car. But it gets 60 miles per gallon! That's triple the mileage of my existing vehicle.

They have some really nice models now that actually have some room in them too, these aren't just tiny cars. I have some friends who drive them and love 'em.

Take that Chevron! Woo Hoo!

:spin:
