Talking Can it be true or this guys is day dreamer....

I hear we are going to hit close to $3.00 a gallon by the summer 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 it and join with us!

By now you're probably thinking gasoline priced at about $1.50 is
supercheap. Me too! It is currently $1.97 for regular unleaded in my town.(California)

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 pocket book 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 =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 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. Thatís 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 email out
to then 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 AND KEEP THEM DOWN. THIS CAN REALLY WORK. YOU KNOW THEY LOVE HOLIDAYS AND SUMMER TRAVELERS.

Holy shit!!!! This is going to take about 100-150 years if it has to reach a 6th generation of people

Changing the title to more intuitive

title.

The title should convey the post.

ABout the post:

Say we dont buy from company A and only buy from smaller company B and C and others.

Then the demand will go up for company B and C. Now demand and supply law would apply and company B and C would increae their prices soon. Do you think that company A will not wait to see the prices of B and C go up once folks just turn to B and C and avoid A?


Well, the only real thing can be to conserve. Think about do you really need to drive to that place you are thinking fo going? Can you go by public transport? Many times you just want to drive around some scenic route to while away your time or to enjoy your new car or just to see the scenery. Okay this is fine once a while since gas prices are high. Next time think about how you can enjoy in other ways like staying at home reading books, watching a movie in a cinema hall, exercising, taking a long walk in a nearby park or some such activity which does not involve using up too much fuel.

Saving gas money...Its all upto you.

this is crap .. this guy obviously hasnt heard of big oil ..

They are a consortium .. if you stop buying from Exxon, all you are doing is hurting the local seller. Because, since the amount of gas used and supplied is constant, AMOCO, BP etc will just buy the gas from EXXON. EXXON still makes its money. Who loses - your local Patel bhai running the EXXON gas station ..

Once again, they (Big Oil) have you by the short hairs. It is a sellers market. Deal with it.
