    Here is an article. Ultra why the aversion to politics? HA! HA!

    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

    >x 10 =3D

    >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
