Canadians, do your part to combat rising gas price
Having some control over gas prices...
I hear we are going to hit close to $1.00 a litre by the summer.
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 with us! By now you're probably thinking gasoline priced at about 69.9 cents a litre is super cheap. Me too! It is currently 76.9 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 Litre of gas is CHEAP at 69.9, 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 PETRO CANADA & 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 Shell and Petro Canada
It's really simple to do!! Now, don't wimp out on me at this
point...keep reading and I'll explain how simple it is to reach millions of people!
I am sending this note to about thirty people. If each of you sends 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! 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.
How long would all that take? If each of us sends this email 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.
PLEASE HOLD OUT UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES AND KEEP THEM DOWN.
THIS CAN REALLY WORK.
YOU KNOW THEY LOVE HOLIDAYS AND SUMMER TRAVELERS.
This can work if people actually think about where they are buying their gas, and stop the "I buy my gas at xxxxxx because it's better for my car" or "this is where I always buy my gas" idiotic logic. Gas is gas and it doesn't matter who you buy it from, so change your habit pattern. I am amazed at the number of people who are buying gas at a station which is five cents higher than the station across the street. Do they really think they are getting better gas? If even 15 or 20 percent of the buyers stopped buying at Petro Canada and Shell, it would have a noticeable effect. Stop complaining and do something about the high prices
