GAS WAR - an idea that WILL work.
 This was originally sent by a retired Coca Cola executive. It came from
one of
his engineer buddies who retired from Halliburton. It ' s worth your
consideration.


 Join the resistance!!!! I hear we are going to hit close to $4.00 a gallon
by
next summer and it might go higher!! 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 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 $2.79 for
regular
unleaded in my town. 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 and 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.

 I am sending this note to 30 people. If each of us sends it to at least
ten
more (30 x 10 =3D 300) ... and those 300 send it to at least ten more (300 x
10
=3D 3,000)...and so on, by the time the message reaches the sixth group 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<FONTCOLOR=NAVY people will have been contacted! If it goes one level
further, you guessed it.... THREE >>HUNDRED MILLION >>PEOPLE!!!

 Again, all you have to do is send this to 10 people. That's all. (If you
don't
understand how we can reach 300 million and all you have to do is send this
to
10 people.... Well, let's face it, you just aren't a mathematician. But I
am, so
trust me on this one.)

 How long would all that take? If each of us sends this e-mail out to ten
more
people within one day of receipt, all 300 MILLION people could conceivably
be
contacted within the next 8 days!!!

 I'll bet you didn't think you and I had that much potential, did you?

 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 TO THE $1.30 RANGE AND KEEP THEM DOWN.

 THIS CAN REALLY WORK.
 FAITH IS NOT BELIEVING THAT GOD CAN....
 IT IS KNOWING THAT HE WILL
