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
not buy from EXXON/MOBIL UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES TO THE $1.30 RANGE
AND KEEP THEM DOWN. THIS CAN REALLY WORK
