This was an email sent to me. It ask for me to send it out to 10 other people, so I figured this would be the easiest way to get it out to ATLEAST 10 people. Pass it on.
2004 GASOLINE PRICES
-----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
Please read it and join with us .By now you're
probably thinking gasoline priced at about $1.50 is
super cheap. Me too! It is currently $1.97 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.
It's really simple to do!! Now, don't whimp 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 = 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
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 millionand all you have to do is send this to 10
people.... Well, let's face it, you just aren't a
How long would all that take? If each of us sends this
email 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 I
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 TO THE $1.30 RANGE AND
KEEP THEM DOWN. THISCAN REALLY WORK.

Stop your whining! In Montreal I am paying $0.88 per litre (thats $3.33 / gallon) today! And that peanuts compared to what our bros in the UK and Europe pay.
You've been spoiled for too long with low gas prices in the US

RK...you pay $3.995 per gallon (.88*4.54)
I pay $0.73 per litre...times that by 4.54 and you get $3.31 per gallon

For all the SUV and Truck guys. But, seriously though if you don't like the price of gas just don't use it or use less. Do we (as Americans) really need a land yacht SUV that gets 11MPG? I know people like them, I know they make some feel safe, I know you can use them to haul/tow lots of stuff. But honestly how many people that drive them actually use them for what they were intended? Would it kill people to have a smaller, more fuel efficient vehicle that they use for the daily commute or whatever and use the SUV/Truck when they need to haul or tow something. I just find it ironic when some people gripe about the cost of fuel when they buy a vehicle that has a 30 gallon or better tank and it only gets like 10-15 MPG. Mark

Oh, and I drive a Peugeot 406 1.8 LXS. Not a huge engine, or a really fast car.
