NO GAS!!!

FIGURED WE SHOULD TRY IT...

NO GAS...On November 21st 2007

Don't pump gas on November 21, 2007
In April 1997, there was a "gas out" conducted nationwide in protest of gas prices. Gasoline prices dropped 30 cents a gallon overnight.

On November 21st 2007, all internet users are to not go to a gas station in protest of high gas prices. Gas is now over $3.20 a gallon in most places.

There are 73,000,000+ American members currently on the internet network, and the average car takes about 45 to 65 dollars to fill up.

If all users did not go to the pump on the 21st, it would take $2,292,000,000.00 (that's almost 3 BILLION) out of the oil companies pockets for just one day, so please do not go to the gas station on November 21st and let's try to put a dent in the Middle Eastern oil industry for at least one day.

If you agree (which I can't see why you wouldn't) repost this to ALL~ "Don't pump gas on November 21st"

Re: NO GAS!!!

They make so much money a day, they could probably last a week.

I mean no hard feelings for what I post on this website. Anything I type/write/post/say on this forum is only that of general debate and discussion. I am not biased toward anyone or anything. I am neutral in everything I do on this website. Only those facts that are presented to me sway my thought process and siding of each discussion topic that I post about.

And in the end the only people who would suffer would be the small gas station owners. Even after 1 day of this, the station owners are forced to raise prices, and even that doesn't help them. No, if you're going to take on the companies, you have to go straight to OPEC. See you in Abu Dhabi.

Re: NO GAS!!!

How does this make any sense? If I don't fill up tomorrow, I will need to fill up the day after. As much as it sucks, my car needs gas and I have to pay whatever price they charge me or I get to start taking the bus.

Long story short, if people can't afford gas because the price is getting higher and higher maybe instead of buying that 2L of coke you should just stick to tap water.

Ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer

i see your point, but do you think the gas companies should be making that much profit? kinda shady if you ask me, if the amount of oils is going down, then the price should go up enough to make up for the demand and what it takes to get it, but not to the point where the gas companies are making recored braking amounts of money. IMO
