Gasless Sunday

If you need gas, get it the day before or the day after!

Remember Friend:

Don't Pump Gas

NO GAS...On May 15th 2007
Don't pump gas on may 15th
In April 1997, there was a "gas out" conducted nationwide in protestof 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 alot of places. 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 companys 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.

If you agree (which I cant see why you wouldnt) resend this to all your contact list. With it saying, ''Don't pump gas on May 15th"

As they say on "Around the Horn," I'm selling this one. Here's the low-down on Snopes.

Unfortunately, the oil moguls (mongrels) know they'll make their money tenfold on the surrounding days.

Personally, I'd like to see more peopling biking, walking and carpooling — that's the only way to really kick 'em in the crotch (errr, I mean... checkbook).

But I certainly understand the desire to send a message, loud and clear.
