I don't make this stuff up I just pasted this on.
GAS WAR - an idea that WILL work. This was originally
sent by a retired Coca Cola executive. It came
from one of his engineer buddies who retired from
Halliburton. 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 down? We need to take
some intelligent, united action. 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! 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 on and join with us! By now you're
probably thinking gasoline priced at about $1.50 is
super cheap. Me too! It is currently $2.79 for regular
unleaded in my town. Now that the oil companies and
the OPEC nations have conditioned us to think that th!
e 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 market place. 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
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
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 bet you didn't think you and I had that
much potential, did you! Acting together we can make a
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 $1.30 RANGE AND KEEP
THEM DOWN. THIS CAN REALLY WORK.
Copy and paste this to an email and send it to as many people as you know.
this will work but what about Texaco........
u can add texaco to the list, but once exxon starts lowering prices everybody will follow. this can really make a statement.
Which ones are the exxon/mobile stations? So I can pass the word along. I sent this email out yesterday and got a thousand questions back about which ones were whiich. All I could say was "hell I don't know"
E West34...tell them the ones that have the big red and blue sign out front that say "Exxon"..just kidding i will see if i can get a list of all their companies...
