gas prices

56 posts in this topic

dont know if it will work though Gas Prices TOOOOO HIGH 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 4.6 BILLION DOLLARS WHICH AFFECTS THE BOTTOM LINES OF THE OIL COMPANIES. THEREFORE SEPTEMBER 1ST HAS BEEN FORMALLY DECLARED "STICK IT UP THEIR @$$ " 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 ADMIINSTRATION 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 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 SEPTEMBER 1ST A DAY THAT THE CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES SAY "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH" PLEASE FORWARD THIS TO EVERYONE YOU CAN

Its bullshit that gets passed around everytime gas goes up. How is "Everyone" supposed to take part in this, since its an email chain letter and a large portion of the U.S. population doesn't have home internet access? This is dumb, just like the one about not buying gas from certain stations will interrupt cash flow to terrorists. My advice, suck it up and buy some Exxon stock.

Heh... Not going to happen. No one really takes those things seriously. And as Satty said, there isn't enough people for it to get sent to. Even if everyone took it seriously.

it wouldn't work even if everyone did refrain from purchasing gas for one day...neither would the idea of boycotting exxon/mobile and not purchasing their gas...I have my reasons, but I wont get into it now...too tired...

That sounds about right. OPEC breaks out cases of champagne the day afterwards when business doubles.

I got two copies of this crap in my e-mail just the other day.

It won't work for all the reasons specified (people will buy the day before or after).

Now if we all cut our driving by 25%. It would work.

It just ain't gonna happen until gas hits $4 or $5 a gallon.

I have heard Hawaii is starting to feel the hit of the gas prices, so now the hawaiian govt. is trying to put profit caps on the gas stations out there so the gas stations are only allowed to make up to a certain profit...if it goes through (which might be highly unlikely because it is illegal) then california may follow suit after seeing how well it works...

just talk to your local politician and find out how much they really tax your gas. I can gaurentee it's more than your local sales tax.

You doing a lot of city driving? I get better than 30 doing almost all in city, stop-and-go driving and a lot of idling. Wait, isn't yours the "second-gen" the updated one? My mom had one and it felt slower and seemed to get worse mileage, they're a bit heavier than the originals.

I hope there IS some kind of profit cap, although I highly doubt it. Who funds politicians? I don't seem to trust anyone it seems in this world today. Not trying to a go on war with anyone, just my personal opinion. It's a nature of human to be greedy, that's all I can say. In Toronto gas has reached $1.20/L. Have to start using dollars instead of cents. :angry: Edited by ToniCipriani

$3.20 a gallon for regular here. Rising gas prices are really just a catalyst for change. We should have been investing in renewable alternative energy sources decades ago. Far too many people believe the "age of oil" was never going to end. Anyone outside the oil industry will tell you that oil production will peak by 2010 if it hasn't already...while demand certainly isn't slowing.
