PLEASE READ AND GET IN ON THIS REVOLT
I posted this plan I got from some folks in BC about three weeks ago and over 1300 people have read it. Word must have gotten back to the oil companies about a planned GAS WAR/REVOLT and they responded by pushing the gas prices higher last week, before we even got organized.
I found it interesting that the two oil companies we were to stop buying from lead the price increase, namely ESSO and PETROCAN. I have shortened the message for this ad but please don’t wait start the revolt/boycott now before they push the prices even higher.

THIS IS NOT THE OLD “DON'T BUY GAS FOR ONE DAY”, BUT IT WILLSHOW YOU HOW WE CAN GET GAS BACK DOWN TO $1.00 PER LITRE.

This was devised by a retired Coca Cola executive. It came from one of his engineers who retired from Haliburton.
We are going to hit close to $ 1.50 a litre by this summer and it will go higher!!
We need to take some intelligent, united action. The oil companies just laughed at us because they knew we wouldn't continue to "hurt ourselves” by refusing to buy gas at any price.
Previous attempts were more of an inconvenience to us than it was a problem for them. BUT this original idea has evolved into a new plan that will work.
You're probably thinking gasoline priced at about $.99 is cheap. Me too! It is currently $1.42 at SUNOCO and ESSO for regular in BC and climbing every week.
Now that the oil companies and the OPEC nations have conditioned us to think that the cost of a gallon of gas is CHEAP at $.87 to .99, we need to take action to teach them that the consumer controls the market not the supplier.
With the price of gasoline going up more each day, we consumers need to take action.
The only way we are going to see the price of gas come down is if we hit them in the pocketbook by not purchasing their gas!
We can do that WITHOUT hurting ourselves.
How? Since we all rely on our cars, we can't just stop buying gas.
We CAN have an impact on gas prices if we act together to force a price war.
For the rest of this year, DON'T purchase ANY fuel from the two biggest companies SUNOCO/PETRO CANADA and ESSO.
If they are selling less fuel they will be forced to reduce their prices to remain competitive. Once they reduce their prices, the other oil companies will be forced to follow suit.
To have the greatest impact, we need to reach literally millions of SUNOCO/PETRO CANADA and ESSO gas buyers.
I am sending this note to 30 people. If each of us send it to at least ten more (30 x 10 = 300) ... and those 300 send it to at least ten more (300 x 10 = 3,000)... and so on, by the time the message reaches the sixth group of people, we will have reached over THREE MILLION consumers .
Once those three million get on board and pass this on to ten friends each, then 30 million people will have been contacted!
If it goes one level further, you guessed it..... THREE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE!!!
Again, all you have to do is send this to 10 people!
How long would all that take? If each of us sends this e-mail out to ten more people within one day of receipt, all 300 MILLION people could conceivably be contacted within the next 8 days!
Acting together we can make a difference.
Please pass this message on. I suggest we not buy from SUNOCO/PETRO CANADA and ESSO UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES TO THE $.99 RANGE AND KEEP THEM DOWN. THIS WILL WORK.
HERES THE TOUGH PART
BUY NO FUEL FROM PETROCAN / SUNOCO OR ESSO!
