North American Gas Outgreenspun.com : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread
Last year on April 30, 1999, a gas out was staged across Canada and the U.S. to bring the price of gas down, and it worked. It's time to do something about it again. This time trucking companies and private businesses have decided to make it for three days instead of just one. The oil cartel decided to slow down production to drive up gas prices. FOR WHAT? Most experts predicts prices will continue to increase within the next six months to around $1.80 (I've heard higher) per gallon. WHY?
LET'S HAVE A GAS OUT! Do not buy gasoline from APRIL 7, 2000, THROUGH APRIL 9, 2000. Buy what you need before the dates listed above, or after, but try not to buy any during the GAS OUT. If you want to help, just send this to everyone you know and ask them to do the same. We brought the prices down once before, and we can do it again! Come on North America, let's stand together. WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!!!!

I haven't bought gas since Dec 25th.I guess it's one of the benefits of being wrong,for the most part.But it won't last forever and I hope it can line itself out.

An officer at my company mass e-mailed this to all employees worldwide. the word's getting out. I found it amusing going to our Middle East branches, the Saudis will know the plan.

This is a good start, but if we are really going to send a message to OPEC we need to try and reduce our gasoline consumption a little bit, every day. Collectively, we CAN make a difference. Even car-pooling one day a week, or waiting to combine errands so that gas consumption is minimized will help. Remember the slogan "Save Water - Shower With A Friend"? Maybe we can Save Gasoline - Drive With A Friend!
