Gas is going up up up and up

April 14th, 2006 at 03:36 pm

Did any one notice the price of gas? It changes by the hour. On my way to work (7:30am) it was $2.77 on my way home (12:00pm) for lunch it was $2.77 on my way back (1:30) it was $2.80 wow. Now yesterday when I was at the north office it was about $2.89 then $2.92 now $2.97
What is going on? I am in FL is this a good deal compared to the rest of you. I can kick myself for not stopping this morning like I was suppose to we’ll see what it is when I leave hear at 7pm

    It is the same way in St. Louis. My work is across the street from a QT and that is part of our entertainment.... guessing what will happen next, betting which day it will shoot up. Yes, no life, but hey something to do.

    Oh, it is getting ridiculous here. We have an oil refinery in our county, for heaven's sake! The highest I saw today was $2.93, but I don't go there. We have a big fueling station in one of the farm towns just off the highway that all the big trucks go to, but they sell to everyone, where it is $2.69, which still feels like highway robbery. Even the "cheap" one in the main town is $2.73. Yuck.

    Since my last post on Friday, gas is now $2.83, what are we going to do? I wonder if gas will hit 3.00

    I URGE YOU TO NOT BUY GAS OR DIESEL FROM EXXON/MOBIL UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES TO THE $1.30 RANGE AND KEEP THEM DOWN.

    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.

    We have more power than you think - if we unite and stay committed.

    If each of us sends this e-mail out to ten more people within one day of receipt, 300 MILLION people could conceivably be contacted within the next 8 days!!!



    THIS CAN REALLY WORK!



    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. Me too! It is currently $2.81 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 PLAN: 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 at this point.... keep reading and I'll explain how simple it is to reach millions of people. I am sending this note to 30 people. If each of us sends 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 group 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..... WE WILL REACH THREE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE!!!

    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 million and all you have to do is send this to 10 people.... Please just trust me on this one.) How long would all that take? If each of us sends this e-mail 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 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. I URGE YOU TO not buy from EXXON/MOBIL UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES TO THE $1.30 RANGE AND KEEP THEM DOWN.

    We have more power than you think - if we unite and stay committed.

    THIS CAN REALLY WORK!
