    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 worthy of
    your consideration.

    Join the resistance! I hear we are going to hit close to $4.00 a gallon
    by summer and it might possibly 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 earlier! 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 2007 , 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 wimp out at this
    point.... keep reading and I'll explain how simple it is to reach
    millions of people.
