For what reason? What statement are you trying to send, and to who?
Just trying to figure it out.

These boycotts do nothing because if you don't buy it one day, you will buy it the next. If you want to make a statement, just cut your fuel consumption WAY back...........Gary

Please read...This may be an alternative rather than not buying gas!!!


I started to delete this........ If his sources are correct about which companies buy from where, this might deserve a look. I know the theory of lowering prices can have a snowball effect, just as raising them has....


THIS IS NOT THE 'DON'T BUY' GAS FOR ONE DAY, BUT IT WILL SHOW YOU HOW WE
CAN GET GAS BACK DOWN TO $1.30 PER GALLON.

This was sent by a retired Coca Cola executive. It came from one of his
engineer buddies who retired from Halliburton. If you are tired of the gas
prices going up AND they will continue to rise this summer, take time to
read this please.

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!
It's worth your consideration. Join the resistance!!!!

I hear we are going to hit close to $ 5.00 a gallon by next summer and it
might go higher!! Want gasoline prices to come down?

We need to take some intelligent, united action.
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 $2.00 is super
cheap. Me too! It is currently $3.08 at Arco and Costco for regular
unleaded in Salem, Oregon and climbing every week.

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 on me at
this point...keep reading and I'll explain how simple it is to reach
millions of people!!


SNOPES SAYS THIS IS A GOOD IDEA!

CHECK THIS OUT!!!!1

You might want to pass this on. but take a look at WALMART. WOW they do it
right (Notice where WalMart gets their gasoline!)

WHERE TO BUY AMERICAN GASOLINE. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO KNOW. READ ON.

Are you aware that the Saudis are boycotting American products? In addition,
they are gouging us on oil prices.
Shouldn't we return the favor? Can't we take control of our own destiny and
let these giant oil importers know who REALLY generates their profits, their
livings? How about leaving American Dollars in America and reduce the
import/export deficit?
An appealing remedy might be to boycott their GAS. Every time you fill up
your car you can avoid putting more money into the coffers of Saudi Arabia .
Just purchase gas from companies that don't import their oil from the
Saudis.
Nothing is more frustrating than the feeling that every time I fill up my
tank, I'm sending my money to people, who I get the impression, want me, my
family and my friends dead.

The following gas companies import Middle Eastern oil:

Shell...................................... 205,742,000 barrels
Chevron/Texaco.................... 144,332,000 barrels
Exxon /Mobil.......................... 130,082,000 barrels
Marathon/Speedway............. 117,740,000 barrels
Amoco................................... 62,231,000 barrels
And CITGO oil is imported from Venezuela by Dictator Hugo Chavez who hates
America and openly avows our economic destruction! (We pay Chavez's regime
nearly $10 Billion per year in oil revenues!)

The U.S. currently imports 5,517,000 barrels of crude oil per day from OPEC.
If you do the math at $100 per barrel, that's over $550 million PER DAY
($200 BILLION per year!) handed over to OPEC, many of whose members are our
confirmed enemies!!!!! It won't stop here - oil prices could go to $200 a
barrel or higher if we keep buying their product.

Here are some large companies that *DO NOT *import Middle Eastern oil: *
Sunoco*.....................0 barrels *
Conoco.. *.................0 barrels *
0ASinclair*...................0 barrels *
BP / Phillips*........... 0 barrels *
Hess*........................0 barrels *
ARC0*........................0 barrels *
Maverick*...................0 barrels *
Flying J*...................0 barrels *
Valero*....................... 0 barrels *
Murphy Oil USA*.....*0 barrels
*Sold at WalMART > , gas is from South Arkansas and fully USA owned and
produced .
*Not only that but they give scholarships to all children in their town who
finish high school and are legal US citizens..

All of this information is available from the U.S. Department of Energy and
each company is required to state where they get their oil and how much they
are importing.



I am sending this note to 30 people. If each of us 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
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 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. If we do not buy
from EXXON/MOBIL and the other companies listed above that import their
products from the Middle East, they WILL LOWER THEIR PRICES (MAYBE EVEN AS
LOW AS $2.00/gal) AND KEEP THEM DOWN. *THIS CAN REALLY WORK, IF WE WORK
TOGETHER. *

*
Go American!!!*

Man ......... some people will believe anything ........

this does nothing to hurt anyone except the poor guy that owns the service station. Exxon and the others make their money every step of the way ....... drilling it, transporting it, refining it and transporting it to the storage tanks where everybody fills up their tanker trucks to fill the tanks at the gas station ........ it all comes in the same pipelines to the same storage tanks ............ so the profit at the pump is just 1 small part of the pie .......... Go ahead ..... buy at Wal mart ..... Exxon still makes a profit

Haliburton ........ Coke Exec ........ yeah right ........

Here's another idea: call your broker, and tell him you'd like to buy 1000 shares of XOM. Think of it as a hedge against higher oil and gas prices ...

I say its worth the try, I feel this way about everything, We should be buying all american made products, support our own. Yes, I'm guilty but I do make an honest attempt. I recently was emailed a picture of one of the saudi's homes and his silver car, body was made out of silver. the home looked like a resort. It's time we as Americans make/take a stand, our government certainly isn't. I certainly have done my share of cutting back on gas, I have no choice, can barely afford to drive back and forth to work. I can see I'll be doing a lot of bank fishing this year.

gas

We get most of our oil from Canada ,yes Canada. Tell Obama to open drilling in Alaska or the gulf or in the Bakkin oil fields in South Dakota(which now are projected to have more oil than in Saudi Arabia) and oil prices will drop like a lead weight. Or have Obama promote natural gas (which the US. has an abundance of and burns clean)and again oil will drop in price drastically.It's not the oil companies. Its Obama's energy policies that is causing oil to skyrocket. In fact 0ne oil company went out of business because the Obama administration wouldn't give them a permit to drill. Obama wants only solar ,wind, elecric or nuclear power.Oil is BAD to him but we have to pay higher prices because of his policies.Please realize this fact.

Everyone hates the high gas prices but to get them lower we need to use our own oil but nobody wants to drill here because of the Chance of another Gulf like spill, we have to take our chances but learn from the mistakes and move on or just keep on paying high gas prices

...or, we could send all our eco-whackos to other oil producing nations and see how well their ideas are greeted....

Sorry, couldn't resist.
