    GAS WAR – an idea that WILL work

    This was originally sent by a retired Coca Cola executive It came from one
    of his engineer buddies who retired from Halliburton. It’s worth your

    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 $2.79 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 price 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 30 people. If each of us 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 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….. 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…. 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 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

    If this makes sense to you, please pass this message on. I suggest that we
