Default old post about gas prices...lol

Found this post from Thu Feb 8, 2001 3:52 am over on the yahoo groups page thought it was funny.


Gas Prices
This makes more sense than the don't buy gas on
a<br><br> certain day routine that was going around in
April or<br><br> May. Gasoline Prices! Whoever started
this has a good<br><br> point.<br><br> <br><br> By now
you're probably thinking gasoline priced at<br><br>
about $1.49 is cheap. Me too! As it is now $1.58
for<br><br> regular unleaded. Now that the oil companies and
the<br><br> OPEC nations have conditioned us to think that
the<br><br> cost of a gallon of gas is CHEAP at less than
$1.50,<br><br> we need to try an aggressive response. With
the<br><br> price of gasoline going up more each day, we
consumers<br><br> need to take action. The only way we are going
to<br><br> see the price of gas come down is if we don't buy
it.<br><br> But, that's not really a practical option since
we all<br><br> have come to rely on our
cars.<br><br> <br><br> But we CAN have an impact on gas prices
if we all<br><br> act together.<br><br> <br><br>
Here's the idea -<br><br> <br><br> For the rest of this
year, don't purchase gasoline<br><br> from the two
biggest companies (which now are one),<br><br> EXXON and
MOBIL. If they are not selling, they should<br><br> be
inclined to reduce their prices-and if they<br><br> reduce
their prices the other companies will too.<br><br>
<br><br> But to have an impact, we need to reach
literally<br><br> millions of users. But it's doable!<br><br>
<br><br> I am sending this note to 42 people. If each of
you<br><br> send it to at least 10 more ...and those 10 send
it to<br><br> at least 10 more ... and so on by the
time the<br><br> message reaches the sixth iteration
we will have<br><br> reached over one million
consumers. Acting together<br><br> we<br><br> can make a
difference. If this makes sense to you,<br><br> please pass
this message on, or one you compose, to<br><br> at
least 10 more E-mail addresses.<br><br> <br><br> ****
PLEASE HOLD OUT UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES TO<br><br>
$1.28 - $1.29 AND KEEP THEM DOWN. THIS CAN
REALLY<br><br> WORK.<br><br> <br><br> Katherine Doyle<br><br>

I had a feeling that Katherine Doyle from WCRC didnt write this, so I checked snopes. Didnt find the same letter, but similar discussion. http://www.snopes.com/politics/gasoline/saudigas.asp
