No you did not read the subject line wrong. But let me also say
that neither the oil
companies nor the government
will do anything to
bring the prices down. To make this happen, and I believe it can
happen, it will take a concerted effort by all of us to finally take
charge of some of the circumstances that affect our lives. Here is how
I propose that you bring fuel
prices back in line on a permanent basis.
If you target one oil
company at a time, let's say we choose Shell Oil
for a starter, and beginning May 1st we stop buying
ANY Shell products
until they bring fuel
prices down to $1.50 per gallon.I think $1.50 is a fair price
for them.Now that should not be hard since all it will mean is that you will need to drive another block or cross the street to buy at another station. You will
also need to get the word out to as many folks as possible as quickly
as possible. Copy and paste this note into your email
and send it to
everyone on your contact list. Email
it to all of your local newspapers
and TV stations, post it on all of the web sites that you visit, but please just spread the word.
The oil companies really believe we are all stupid and lazy. They
count on us to just watch the prices go up almost daily and believe we
will do nothing and take it. Let's show them that this is not the case.
They count on you believing that the prices are going up because of
hurricanes, unrest in certain countries, and someone in one of the oil
cartels getting a cold. This we are told increases prices immediately.
But when things work in the other direction the prices don't drop for
weeks or months and they count on you just accepting this. Once Shell is in line then it will be time to move on to the next company unless they have already seen the light.
High fuel prices affect what you have left in your paycheck to
for you family
, and pay your rent and mortgages. It increases your
grocery bill and makes everything you need and buy more expensive and even
whether you can take your family
out to dinner this week. So now you
can take back what the oil companies have been taking from you. But it
means a bit of work and effort. It means that even if the prices are
higher at Chevron and Shell has not come down to $1.50, you will still
not buy from Shell.This will be the difficult but essential part of
this exercise. But if you look at serious boycotts by determined people
in the past it has brought about major changes in our lives. I can
think of no more important changes that are needed at this juncture in
time. Will you do it, and will you stop swallowing the lies and
manipulations of the oil companies? Will you make them give back some
of those billions of dollars they have taken away from you and your
family. I offer a possible solution and only you and I and our friends,
family, business associates and neighbors can make it happen. We need
everyone in on this one and perhaps tomorrow will look a little
better. The oil companies will tell you it won't make a difference and will
create shortages and mayhem in the market place. Have they been truthful
in the past? Let's let them know we are not lazy and stupid. We are determined
to take control of the things that affect our lives and we are ready to start today.
Are you with me? Let's not take it any more!
