This was sent by a retired Coca Cola executive. It came from
one of his engineer buddies who retired from Halliburton. If
you are tired of the gas prices going up AND they will continue
to rise this summer, take time to read this please.
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!
It's worth your consideration. Join the resistance!!!!
I hear we are going to hit close to $4.00 a gallon by next
summer and it might go higher!! Want gasoline prices to come
We need to take some intelligent, united action.
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
BUT, whoever thought of this idea, has come up with a plan
that can Really work. Please read on and join with us!
By now you're probably thinking gasoline priced at about $2.00
is super cheap. Me too! It is currently $3.08 at Arco and
Costco for regular unleaded in Salem, Oregon and climbing
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
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 30 people. If each of us 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 group 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 e-mail
out to ten more people within one day of receipt, all 300
MILLION people could conceivably be contacted within the next
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. I
suggest that we not buy from EXXON/MOBIL UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR
PRICES TO THE $2.00 RANGE AND KEEP THEM DOWN. THIS CAN REALLY
