IT HAS BEEN CALCULATED THAT IF EVERYONE IN THE UNITED STATES DID NOT



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 MAY 19TH HAS BEEN FORMALLY DECLARED "STICK IT UP THEIR BEHIND"
DAY AND THE Penis EnlargementOPLE 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
Penis EnlargementOPLE 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 HAPPenis EnlargementN. WHAT HAPPenis EnlargementNED TO THE REDUCTION AND CONTROL IN PRICES
THAT THE ARAB NATIONS PROMISED TWO 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 SHIPPenis EnlargementD. 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 MAY 19TH A DAY THAT THE CITIZENS OF
THE UNITED STATES SAY "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH"

Well i laugh at you all as we in the UK are paying shitloads more than you. Take some pain you damned yanks lol welcome to our reality!

that email sounds like one of those BS emails everyone sends around at work, interesting "facts" and nothing to back it up. If no one buys fuel that day surely nothing would happen. The pumps would still have fuel in them. The gas station may just have to order a little less for the next shipment. "THE
OIL COMPANIES WOULD CHOKE ON THEIR STOCKPILES."
Err....no. They would at worst have a little more than usual. Besides China is rapidly emerging as one of the worlds biggest users of diesel and petrol so one small stand by one country would achieve little.

I cant believe how much i just wrote on this, geez i must be bored :)

Us Americans love our gas. Yea I know the UK pays more but that's not the point. Our prices have doubled and in some places almost trippled in a little over a year. That's what everyone is pissed about.

Gas is lower than 1981 (when I was 2)( Minimum wage was probably a couple bucks). Since I started driving about 9 years ago, gas has gone up about 50%. By comparison, I made $4.25 an hour then. So an increase of 50% over $4.25 would mean that as long as I make over $6.38, which I do, gas is relatively lower. It was higher for me in 2001 when it was about 15-20 cents lower than it is now. I made about 20% less in income. Gas prices are lower than inflation over the last 25 years. I dont know about you, but in my life I plan to always beat inflation. So I dont find it that big a deal. A cost of life. Heck I remember paying 69 cents in 1999 winter when it was $1.25 the previous summer. Thats the way gas prices fluctuate.
Gas prices, relatively speaking , have not increased much or stay constant over the course of many years. I do understand most people dont think in terms of longevity and part of the reason people are feeling the pinch is gas prices have probably been too low in the past. Gas does not rise steadily like many other purchases but increases and declines sharply at once, so it is more noticeable.
Maybe you should be protesting something like the cost of milk instead, considering that has risen and the government makes it illegal to sell milk under a certain price no matter what.

Most of the gas you use in the US comes from Canada. They import about 800,000 barrels of oil a day and export out to the US 2 to 3 times that amount. Why the gas is soo friggin high I have no clue
