Let's make this happen!!!
If you need gas, get it the day before or the day after!
Remember Friend: Don't Pump Gas
NO GAS...On May 15th 2007
Don't pump gas on.May 15th
In April 1997, there was a "gas out" conducted nationwide in protest of
gas prices. Gasoline prices dropped 30 cents a gallon overnight.
On May 15th 2007, all internet users are to not go to a gas station in
protest of high gas prices. Gas is now over $3.00 a gallon in a lot of
There are 73,000,000+ American members currently on the internet
network, and the average car takes about 30 to 50 dollars to fill up.
If all users did not go to the pump on the 15th, it would take
$2,292,000,000.00 (that's almost 3 BILLION) out of the oil companys
pockets for just one day, so please do not go to the gas station on May
15th and lets try to put a dent in the Middle Eastern oil industry for
at least one day.
Now I know it's flawed because we'll all be buying gas anyway (day before, day after, whatever), but what kind of message would it send if every gas station across the country didn't sell one single gallon of gas on May 15th? Think there wouldn't be some power in numbers? Could spur all kinds of things, such as the gas companies being worried about a boycott of one particular chain for being greedy crooks (Exxon I'm looking at you!) or many other things.
I think worst case is it gets Exxon's (and all the other dirty crooks) attention.
So do as you wish, but I won't be buying gas on May 15th.
