NO GAS...On May 15th 2007
Don't pump gas on MAY 15th
In April 1997, there was a "gas out" conducted nationwide in protest of
gas prices. Gasoline prices dropped 30 cents a gallon overnight.
On May 15th 2007, all internet users are to not go to a gas station in
protest of high gas prices. Gas is now over $3.00 a gallon in most
There are 73,000,000+ American members currently on the internet
network, and the average car takes about 30 to 50 dollars to fill up.
If all users did not go to the pump on the 15th, it would take
$2,292,000,000.00 (that's almost 3 BILLION) out of the oil companies
pockets for just one day, so please do not go to the gas station on May
15th and lets try to put a dent in the Middle Eastern oil industry for
at least one day.
Last year, ExxonMobil posted record profits, and still claimed that there was a fuel shortage. If we really want to see fuel prices drop, write your representatives and tell them to shitcan the gas taxes. (Since they typically add .50-1.00 or more per gallon at the pump.)
P.S. May 16 is push your car to work day, and may 17th is visit your local chiropractor day. Most important, May 14th is :"go commando" day. If you have to ask, nevermind.
