Join the resistance!!!! I hear we are going to hit
close to $ 4.00 a gallon by the end of 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 market place, 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 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 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.
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 difference.

If this makes sense to you, please pass this message
