“The IDEA” Consumers Initiate Gas Price War!


Source:  A retired…executive received this from one of his engineer buddies, Phillip Hollsworth, who retired from Halliburton.  Phillip Hollswort’s "IDEA"  makes MUCH MORE SENSE than the "don’t buy gas on a certain day” campaign that was going around last April or May!  It’s worth your consideration. Join the resistance!!!! 

Oil companies just laughed, knowing The public only "hurt and inconvenienced themselves" by not buying gas.  We The People, as consumers, want gasoline prices to come down?  Intelligent-United Action is needed to fight the $4.00/gallon, and higher, by next summer! 

Oil companies and 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 and show them that BUYERS control the marketplace. Not sellers To get gas prices down,
"we hit them 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. 
We CAN have an impact on gas prices if we all "act together to force a price war". 
The Idea:
"…DON’T purchase ANY gasoline from EXXON and MOBIL."   
If the two biggest companies can’t sell gas, they will be inclined to reduce their prices.   If they reduce their prices, the other companies will have to follow suit.  We The People can initiate Our Own Gas Price War by using the internet, and other methods of advertising, to Reach Millions of Exxon and Mobil gas buyers.

The originator of this idea sent 30 emails to his address book who in turn sent at least ten emails to their address book. (30 x 10) = 300.  Those 300 sent 10 emails (300 x 10) = 3000…and so on…The sixth group of people will have reached THREE MILLION consumers.  Then those three million continue the fight for the cause to THIRTY MILLION consumers.  The next level would reach THREE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE!!!!  We all know how this works and if you want to put your time and money…where your mouth is…then you will all do your part for the cause that will initiate Our Own Gas Price War.  
All you have to do is just let people know about this.  That’s all! 
How long would all that take?  If each of us gets this message out to ten people, or more, 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.  (Some of us can send five, while others can send 10 or more messagess out)  Just make the effort for the cause for yourself and others!  And keep in mind, for our future generations and the environment, to conserve the usage of gasoline when at all possible. 

And for those who have been conditioned to believe the rhetoric, for the most part, that we are facing a shortage, just remember those significant people that have financial benefit.  It is believed that the political arena has a vested interest in the rhetoric.  Oil companies, corporations, and others have gained financially at the consumers expense.  If you have been listening to the news, you know that their pocketbooks have "unreasonable" financial gains…
Make YOUR commitment now!  ‘We the people will not buy from EXXON/MOBIL UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES TO THE $2.00 RANGE AND KEEP THEM DOWN."    Use your imagination and efforts to get this out to the millions of consumers.  The internet.  Make up flyers to reach ALL the consumers.  Word of mouth still remains an excellent method of advertising.  Post it on your blogs, your website, etc.  Just do your part in some way!
