Gas War – We’ve lost the battle, lets win the war!

Gas Chart

Looks like we’re off to a killer “May Day” month. I don’t know about everyone else but I’m tired of sitting around watching the gas prices shoot up through the sky. A 100.00 gas refund from the government isn’t going to last nearly as long as these prices do. It’s time we as the consumers work together to do our part, otherwise you have no right to complain.I don’t know if it’s true, but I was told that Russia and China are working together with Iran to take away our oil shipments and reroute the oil to China and Russia. This leaving our country in an economic disaster. I’m sure we have plenty of oil in reserve as well as coming from IRAQ to where we shouldn’t be affected for sometime now.

The Plan:
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. 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.
Please read on and join with us! By now you’re probably thinking gasoline priced at about $1.50 is super cheap. Me too! It is currently $3.35 for regular unleaded in California. 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. 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 / 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 at this point…. keep reading and I’ll explain how simple it is to reach millions of people.

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 AND KEEP THEM DOWN. If we show we have control, this will show we can’t be pushed around.

Your Part:
Spread the idea, promote the idea. Don’t sit around and wait for our government to take control of this issue. Please leave feedback and feel free to comment!!

I orginally recieved this in an email from a friend. Instantly I thought this was a great idea and decided to turn that email into a blog. I remember paying .73 a gallon when I was 17, the sad thing is I’m only 24. Look at what happened over 7 years…

My Part:
I decided that blogging about this and not buying gas from Exxon/Mobil wasn’t enough. Currently my Google Adsense account (money I make off the ads on my site) is at 92.38. I’m going to donate that as well as 100.00 of my own money in promoting this idea on Google Adwords. I’m tracking all the stats via Google Analytics and will keep the blog updated with stats of how many visitors and what locations are helping. At the end of the month if this isn’t successfully generating hits I’ll stop promoting it on Google. However, until the Gas prices have dropped I’ll keep this post up.

Thank you for taking the time in reading about this!!

    look at!

    Admin Response:

    The problem with striking for only one day, is that not everyone buys gas everyday, infact most people buy gas once/twice a week. This means a majority of people aren’t buying gas on the day of the strike anyway. In my eyes the companies aren’t being affected like we need. If we all refuse to buy from the “bully” of the profits, we’ll truely hurt them, not for a day, for a YEAR or whatever it takes. Also, we’re only targetting the bully, not the little helpless gas stations.

    I’ll participate in both of these strikes/boycotts!

    well your asking us not to buy gas from exxon/mobil but yet your advertising free gas from exxon whats up?

    Admin Response:

    I apologize…I’m not too good with Adsense and I guess they have that in the keywords to be used. I’ll edit my AdSense account to keep anything from them out of advertising! Also, I removed the ads from displaying on that topic! Once again I apologize.
