My PSA for the Day

BUY NO GAS on May 15th 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 May 15th 2007, all internet users are urged to not go to their local gas station in protest of high gas prices. Gas is now over $3.00 a gallon in most 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 companies' pockets for just one day, so please do not go to the gas station on May 15th 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) copy, paste and email this to all your contact list. Or cut and paste and post this on your own blog.

''Don't pump gas on May 15th"

Cool idea. However, if I may ask, in all sincerity and without a trace of sarcasm, where do you think the oil companies are going to recoup their one day 3 billion dollar loss other than to jack prices up even more?
