Let's see if this works ...

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 asked to not go to a gas
station and pump gas 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 (and I can' t see why you wouldn't' t) resend this to
everyone on your contact list with it saying ''Don't pump gas on May


  1. This is crap - and I can't believe you fell for it.

  2. Actually, I want to clarify (which I should have done when I posted this) ... I got an e-mail like this about 3 years ago, and knew it was crap then. Simple calculations will show you that if no one bought gas on one particular day, they would still need the gas so it would be purchased the day before or the day after, so the oil companies would not be hurt by it at all. I didn't FALL for anything, just simply putting it out there.
