Just sending what was in my mail--At this point, I think its the least we can do..

IT HAS BEEN CALCULATED THAT IF EVERYONE IN THE UNITED STATES DID NOT PURCHASE A DROP OF GASOLINE FOR ONE DAY AND ALL AT THE SAME TIME, THE OIL COMPANIES WOULD CHOKE ON THEIR STOCKPILES.



AT THE SAME TIME IT WOULD HIT THE ENTIRE INDUSTRY WITH A NET LOSS OF OVER 46 BILLION DOLLARS WHICH AFFECTS THE BOTTOM LINES OF THE OIL COMPANIES.



THEREFORE MAY 19TH HAS BEEN FORMALLY DECLARED "STICK IT TO THEM DAY" AND THE PEOPLE OF THIS NATION SHOULD NOT BUY A SINGLE DROP OF GASOLINE THAT DAY.



THE ONLY WAY THIS CAN BE DONE IS IF YOU FORWARD THIS E-MAIL TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS YOU CAN AND AS QUICKLY AS YOU CAN TO GET THE WORD OUT.



WAITING ON THIS ADMINISTRATION TO STEP IN AND CONTROL THE PRICES IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE REDUCTION AND CONTROL IN PRICES THAT THE ARAB NATIONS PROMISED TWO WEEKS AGO?



REMEMBER ONE THING, NOT ONLY IS THE PRICE OF GASOLINE GOING UP BUT AT THE SAME TIME AIRLINES ARE FORCED TO RAISE THEIR PRICES, TRUCKING COMPANIES ARE FORCED TO RAISE THEIR PRICES WHICH EFFECTS PRICES ON EVERYTHING THAT IS SHIPPED. THINGS LIKE FOOD, CLOTHING, BUILDING MATERIALS, MEDICAL SUPPLIES ETC. WHO PAYS IN THE END? WE DO!



WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. IF THEY DON'T GET THE MESSAGE AFTER ONE DAY, WE WILL DO IT AGAIN AND AGAIN.



SO DO YOUR PART AND SPREAD THE WORD. FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW. MARK YOUR CALENDARS AND MAKE MAY 19TH A DAY THAT THE CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES SAY "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH"

Even if everyone did this, the profits the following day would roughly double. You'd have to stop purchasing for an extended time period.
exactly, as long as Americans want and have to drive as much as they do (and desire the cars [read: SUVs] that they do) we're going to have pay what ever we have to pay. demand people, demand.

And what about the poeple who drive trucks for a living what do they do? And if they don't drive then food isn't going to get where it needs to go and were all going to starve! I need my food damnit! Our gas is cheap compared to the rest of the world.

What's even more ludicrous than that idea is the fact that I'm taking the time to respond by typing this.

And Marshall is right...the price we pay for gas IS a lot lower than what most of the rest of the world pays. Stop whining.

Sorry, didn't mean to sound hostile, and I don't think most of the above comments are directed at you as much as the silly concept of the email. But also, I don't think most people appreciate the proliferation of chain mail like this, whether your re-forward the message directly, or copy-and-paste it into a web forum message. Anytime you receive an email that says something like "forward this email to as many people as possible", you have to realize that it is almost guaranteed to be worthless chain mail, and therefore (1) its content/message is probably baseless and lacking in credibility, and (2) the person who wrote it probably has no true motive other than the satisfaction of seeing his/her words propagated throughout the net.
