    For whatever it's worth.

    It would be kinda kool if everyone would do this, and then the companies
    would maybe think twice before makeing gas prices so damn high,LOL
    IT HAS BEEN CALCULATED THAT IF EVERYONE IN THE UNITED STATES DID NOT
    PURCHASE A DROP OF GASOLINE FOR ONE DAY AND ALL AT THE SAME TIME, THE OIL
    COMPANIES WOULD CHOKE ON THEIR STOCKPILES.


    AT THE SAME TIME IT WOULD HIT THE ENTIRE INDUSTRY WITH A NET LOSS OF OVER
    4.6 BILLION DOLLARS WHICH AFFECTS THE BOTTOM LINES OF THE OIL COMPANIES.


    THEREFORE MAY 19TH HAS BEEN FORMALLY DECLARED "STICK IT UP THEIR behind "
    DAY AND THE PEOPLE OF THIS NATION SHOULD NOT BUY A SINGLE DROP OF GASOLINE
    THAT DAY.


    THE ONLY WAY THIS CAN BE DONE IS IF YOU FORWARD THIS E-MAIL TO AS MANY
    PEOPLE AS YOU CAN AND AS QUICKLY AS YOU CAN TO GET THE WORD OUT.


    WAITING ON THIS ADMIINSTRATION TO STEP IN AND CONTROL THE PRICES IS NOT
    GOING TO HAPPEN. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE REDUCTION AND CONTROL IN PRICES THAT
    THE ARAB NATIONS PROMISED TWO WEEKS AGO?


    REMEMBER ONE THING, NOT ONLY IS THE PRICE OF GASOLINE GOING UP BUT AT THE
    SAME TIME AIRLINES ARE FORCED TO RAISE THEIR PRICES, TRUCKING COMPANIES ARE
    FORCED TO RAISE THEIR PRICES WHICH EFFECTS PRICES ON EVERYTHING THAT IS
    SHIPPED. THINGS LIKE FOOD, CLOTHING, BUILDING MATERIALS, MEDICAL SUPPLIES
    ETC. WHO PAYS IN THE END? WE DO!


    WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. IF THEY DON'T GET THE MESSAGE AFTER ONE DAY, WE
    WILL DO IT AGAIN AND AGAIN.

    It has been proven over and over again that this doesn't do anything. We are fucked and still have to buy gas so they will still get their money.

    your either going to buy gas the day before, or the day after....so they will still get the money and it won't effect them one bit....

    To really hurt them, walk to work if it's close enough, or bike to work. don't use that much gas, and it will make them hurt...but it has to be for a week. or so...


    time to produce a solar car..... :ph34r:

    Oh my god, you're the first person to point that out online. (Airjockie)

    Also remember, that companies such as Exxon and Mobil aren't the major problem here. Yes, they make gobs of money, but the real problem as always lies in the Emir families that own and compose OPEC. Gas companies are fighting to lower the cost, because it's better business for them. OPEC is the only one really making a difference here.

    It could be worse, in recent years we've picked up a good relationship with Russia for buying oil, and with our own domestic oil fields acheiving efficiency that OPEC can only dream of.
