Gas Out

I received the following in an email yesterday. I will be passing it along to my friends via email. Thought I would share with my blogging friends. I remember when I could fill up the tank with $5.00. At this rate gas will be $5.00 a gallon before long.

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 15th".

Great idea! Thanks for sharing. And I did hear on the news that it is expected to get up to $4.00/gallon summer.
