Here's a message I received from someone I don't know -- but the idea has
some merit considering some believe the price increases blamed on
manipulated temporary closure of manufacturing plants. Here's the message:
"Join the resistance!!!!
I hear gas is 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. This idea was recently proven to be effective in the California and
elsewhere in the supermarket strike. This is because even thought the strike
is probably ending, people have switched markets and many have said they
liked the new stores better adn will continue shopping there even after the
Please read it and join!
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
It's really simple to do!! Now, please don't give up in desparation thinking
it won't work. And here's who we will get the message out: I am sending this
note to about thirty people. If each of you 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 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. That's all.
MILLION's of people could conceivably be contacted within the next 8 days!
I'll bet many of you didn't think the consumers united have that much
potential power. 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 TO THE $1.30 RANGE AND KEEP THEM DOWN.
THIS CAN REALLY WORK."
