>>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!
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 and
DON'T purchase ANY gasoline from EXXON and MOBIL. That's all.
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!!!
