I have rec'd several emails regarding this.....doesn't hurt to try.....
NO GAS...On May 15th 2007
Don't pump gas on MAY 15th
In April 1997, there was a "gas out" conducted nationwide in protest of gas prices. Gasoline prices dropped 30 cents a gallon overnight.
On May 15th 2007 , all internet users are to not go to a gas station in protest of high gas prices. Gas is now over $3.00 a gallon in most places.
There are 73,000,000+ American members currently on the internet network, and the average car takes about 30 to 50 dollars to fill up.
If all users did not go to the pump on the 15th, it would take $2,292,000,000.00 (that's almost 3 BILLION) out of the oil companies pockets for just one day, so please do not go to the gas station on May 15th and lets try to put a dent in the Middle Eastern oil industry for at least one day.
If you agree (which I cant see why you wouldn't) resend this to all your contact list. With it saying, ''Don't pump gas on May 15th"
I was reading about what to do about the high gas prices. Someone said that an overall boycott would not work as they know that we will eventually have to buy gas. The best plan is to boycott one or two companies, such as Shell and Exon. They will have to drop their prices which will cause a gas war.
Now, all we have to do is get everyone else to agree to this.
I can remember gasoline prices at $.28 per gal. . . .LOL. Boy do I feel old. At this point I would take $1.00 per gal.
