Has anyone gotten the following Email? On May 15th 2007, all internet users are to not go to a gas station in protest of high gas prices. Gas is now over $3.00 a gallon in most places.
There are 73,000,000+ American members currently on the internet network, and the average car takes about 30 to 50 dollars to fill up.
If all users did not go to the pump on the 15th, it would take $2,292,000,000.00 (that's almost 3 BILLION) out of the oil companies pockets for just one day, so please do not go to the gas station on May 15th and lets try to put a dent in the Middle Eastern oil industry for at least one day.
If you agree (which I cant see why you wouldn't) resend this to all your contact list. With it saying, ''Don't pump gas on May 15th" this morning my cheap gas station was at $3.11 regular--regular what?????????????
I have received this email several times so it seems to be getting some legs. As I explained to Albert, it isn't because it will make the oil companies lose money, that will never truely happen, it is to demonstrate that if we were to decide to act in unison we could make a BIG difference to their revenue and that they may want to give price gouging a second thought. Wishful thinking
