Don't pump gas on May 15th @ 11:31 am

Tags: , ,

I got this e-mail yesterday. Seems like a good idea. It doesn't mean don't use gas (which is always a good idea), just don't buy it on the 15th. I know this doesn't mean we will actually be taking money away from the oil industry (people will just buy it the day before and the day after), but it's a stand, a statement. United we stand, divided we fall. And I think uniting on this particular topic is important right now. Thanks :).

Let us agree. And if you can send, or tell this to as many people as you know, then even better.

MAY 15TH 2007.

Passing it on, tell your friends....

NO GAS...On May 15th 2007
Don't pump gas on MAY 15th

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 to not go to a 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 lets try to put a dent in the Middle Eastern oil industry for at least one day.

If you agree (which I cant see why you wouldn't) resend
this to all on your contact list. With it saying, ''Don't pump gas on May 15th".

I like the idea, but I'm not so sure it will work.

This is what snopes.com says.

Maybe if Al's bike didn't keep getting stolen, you guys could make a difference in the world. ;-)

Oh, and you might want to remove the personal info from that email. Just to be cautious.

yeah, i know that it never actually does anything, but it feels even worse to just sit around and do nothing (yes, i take mass transit and ride the bike or walk whenever i can). i guess i'm just trying to make myself feel better...(overly dramatic) is that such a crime?!?!?!

No, it's entirely acceptable. I actually suspect you guys are doing great as far as fuel consumption goes...
