Dropping Gas Prices

(Taken from another source)

THIS IS NOT THE 'DON'T BUY' GAS FOR ONE DAY, BUT IT WILL SHOW YOU HOW WE CAN GET GAS BACK DOWN TO $1.30 PER GALLON.



This was sent by a retired Coca Cola executive. It came from one of his engineer buddies who retired from Halliburton. If you are tired of the gas prices going up AND they will continue to rise this summer, take time to read this please.

&nbs p;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 last April or May!
It's worth your consideration. Join the resistance!!!!

I hear we are going to hit close to $ 4.00 a gallon by next summer, and it might go higher!! Want gasoline prices to come down?

We need to take some intelligent, united action. 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 $2.00 is super cheap. Me t oo! It is currently $3.19 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.

& nbsp; 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 this year, 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 on me at this point...keep reading and I'll explain how simple it is to reach millions of people!!

I am sending this note to 30 people. If each of us send it to at least ten more (30 x 10 = 300) ... and those 300 send it to at least ten more (300 x10 = 3,000)...and so on, by the time the message reaches the sixth group of people, we will have reached over THREE MILLION consumers.
If those three million get excited and pass this on to ten friends each, then 30 million people will have been contacted!

If it goes one level further, you guessed it..... THREE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE!!!

Again, all you have to do is send this to 10 people. That's all!

(If you don't understand how we can reach 300 million and all you have to do is send this to 10 people.... Well, let's face it, you just aren't a mathematician. But I am . so trust me on this one.

How long would all that take? If each of us sends this e-mail out to ten more people 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.

If this makes sense to you, please pass this message on. I suggest that we not buy from EXXON/MOBIL UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES TO THE $2.00 RANGE AND KEEP THEM DOWN. THIS CAN REALLY WORK.

Keep it going!!!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I had gotten gas this morning at a Chevron near Hammond, La where the only gas available was Supreme Unleaded for $3.459/gallon.

Lately (since the gas prices started going up), I've wondered if the gas companies are not only increasing the price of gas, but are putting stuff in the gas to decrease fuel efficiency in your vehicle, therefore, forcing you to have to purchase gas more often?

While what I have posted may not work other than hurt the service station and possible you as well, there may not be anything we can do to lower the gas prices. Sure we can improve the public transportation system in this country, but we'd still be affected by the increased gas prices. The higher the price of gas, the higher the price to take the bus to work everyday.

A recession is coming!!!!!

Losing Your First Pet Part 2

I have received the ashes of Chipper a couple of weeks ago, but I'm just now getting to posting about it. They came in a nice small wooden casket which I have placed on the mantle of my fireplace. I have a picture here.



Along with the ashes came a poem called "In Your Heart". It is a poem found on the website petloss.com. It is by an anonymous author stating that your pet has not left you but is with you in spirit. I shed a tear each time I read that poem because it reminds you that all is not lost "...as long as you keep me alive in your heart..." I also have a picture of it here, although you might not be able to read it, but I feel I should show what it looks like.



I also received a sympathy card from the vet who tried to save his life. Unfortunately, this was unexpected and untimely, and I did not see his end coming so soon. I do wish there were more answers, but sometimes things are better left not knowing. It all happens for the best, even though it will make you sad at first.

Again, it is hard losing your first pet. It's wierd I'll come home and realize he's not going to be there to great me at the door when I come in, but I will keep him alive in my heart.
