    Join the resistance!!!! I hear we are going to hit close to $3.00 a
    gallon by the summer and it might go higher!! Want gasoline prices to
    come down? We need to take some intelligent, united action.

    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
    $2.09 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 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
    whimp 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 e-mail 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.

    EXXON and MOBILE arent really even around here in FL where I live. They are all getting shut down or turned into something else...

    Not buying gas on one day means there will be just that much more buying it the next... Gas prices will go down once Bush gets out of office, and until then quit ****in

    and you think exxon mobile just supplies gas to thoes stations? HAHA there is probably 2 big companies that supply gas to everyone here.

    but I'll contribute to the cause and not buy gas form one of them anymore...

    I work at an exxon... we get gas from delco oil... we just got changed to a sunoco... same gas from the same company... but I'm buying from sunoco now so does that count? :banana:

    I buy gas from whichever station is the cheapest. I'll let people who get double digit mileage around town do the boycotting
