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. ÂÂ*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 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. ÂÂ*It's really simple to do! Now, don't wimp out 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 sends it to at least
>ten
>more (30 x 10 =3D 300) ... and those 300 send it to at least ten more (300
>x 10 =3D
>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 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. 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.

>Exxon CEO is retiring with 36 million as his bonus package.....ÂÂ* not
