Don't pump gas on April,15th 2011

By 55Stepside

Il do it! If running low, just get your gas the day before on April 14 or the day after on April 16. Every little bit helps.
In April 1997, there was a "gas out" conducted nationwide in protest of gas prices. Gasoline prices dropped 30 cents a gallon overnight.

On April 15th 2011, all internet users are to not go to a gas station in protest of high gas prices. Gas is now over$4.00 a Gallon in most places.

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 April 15th and let's try to put a dent in the Middle Eastern oil industry for at least one day.

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

Oil companies operate off of a "margin". They try to make the same amount off of a barrel wether it cost $20 a barrel, or $120 a barrel. That's why the prices go up and down as their cost goes up and down.

I hope my car can make it to Saturday. Both my gas tank and my wallet are running on empty at the moment. Pay day is tomorrow, the 15th. Maybe I'll just do a NASCAR-style "Splash & Go": Put $5 worth in it tomorrow and top it up later.
