How To Get Control of our Gas Prices



Gas has just hit close to $1.00 a Litre - Campbell
River is at 96.5 - Nanaimo at 91.5. If you want
gasoline prices to come down we need to take some
intelligent, united action. 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. BUT, whoever thought of this idea,
has come up with a plan that can really work. Please
read it and join the crusade!



By now you're probably thinking gasoline priced at
$.80 a litre is super cheap. We all know that we're
being screwed by the oil companies. Does everyone
remember how they drove up the prices way past a
dollar and got the gas prices to where they wanted
them, claiming there was a shortage of oil. Well,
there isn't any shortage - the oil is more abundant
than it was 35 years ago when the price of a litre of
gas was 29 cents!!!



Now that the oil companies and the OPEC nations have
conditioned us to think that the cost of a litre of
gas is CHEAP at $0.78-$0.85, 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.



For the rest of this year, DON'T purchase ANY gasoline
from the two biggest companies (which are now one),
PETRO CANADA and SHELL. 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 PETRO CANADA and SHELL
buyers. Its really simple to do!!



I am sending this note to at least thirty people. If
each of you send it to at least ten more (30 x 10 =
300) ... and those 300 send it to at least ten more
(300 x 10 = 3,000)...and so on, by the time the
message reaches the sixth generation of people, we
will have reached over THREE MILLION consumers! If
those three million get excited and pass this on to
ten friends each, then 30 million people will have
been contacted!

Please send this to 10 people.



How long would all that take? If each of us sends this
email out to ten people within one day of receipt, all
MILLIONS of people could conceivably be contacted
within the next 8 days!!! Acting together we can make
a difference. If this makes sense to you, please pass
this message on.



PLEASE HOLD OUT UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES TO THE
$0.64 OR LESS RANGE AND KEEP THEM DOWN. THIS CAN
REALLY WORK BUT WE NEED TO WORK TOGETHER!!!!!!!



PLEASE take a few minutes and pass this on to
everyone you know!! If you can't e-mail it to at
least ten people, print copies and hand it out to
your family and friends!!
