    I just got this in an email. i think it could work. READ ON

    Join the resistance!!!!

    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, who ever thought of this idea, has come up with a plan that can really work.
    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- $1.7= 5, 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 MILLION PEOPLE!!! Again, all you have to do is send this to 10 people and DON"T purchase ANY gasoline from EXXON and MOBIL. That's all.

    (If you don't understand how we can reach 300 million don't worry about it all you have do to 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 email out to ten or 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.
    PLEASE HOLD OUT UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES TO THE $1.30 RANGE AND KEEP THEM DOWN. THIS CAN REALLY WORK.

    Well let's see, I've seen this posted or had it e-mailed to me approximately 14,586,994,299,288 times within the last month. Within the last two years, I've seen it posted or e-mailed to me approximately 123,450,393,009,993,224,888 times. How many times has it worked? I would venture a guess somewhere around ZERO!!!!

    If there was one piece of literture that would actually be worthy of being banned off the Planet Earth, it would be this one.

    I would personally like to see vehicle manufacturers start researching the possibilty of using beaver oil to power vehicles. I've been busy harvesting an abundant supply of beaver oil in the last few weeks /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif(it might have something to do with my recent raise), and the possibilty of using it to power my K5 would be great news......
