I HOPE THIS DOES NOT OFFEND ANYONE.... PLEASE DO NOT TAKE OFFENCE.


Not sure if this belongs in this forum??





MARK UR CALENDERS! SET UR PHONES! WHATEVER NEEDS TO BE DONE!!!

Don't pump gas on may 15th
Body: ...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 myspace members are to not go to a gas station 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 myspace network, and the
average car takes about 20 to 30 dollars to fill up.

If all myspace members did not go to the pump on the 15th, it would take
$2,200,000,000.00 (that's BILLION) out of the oil companys 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 (which I cant see why you wouldnt) repost this bulletin repost it with
'Don't pump gas on May 15th

The USA have cheaper gas than us here in the UK lol :'( I think its a good idea that people are conforming to 'not pumping gas' LOL i think its quite funny actually. Haha. But how long will it last? I mean people need fuel to get around. My Fiance pumps around 40 a day in fuel to get to work lol.

Also, its false economy. Probably the day b4 people will fill thier tanks thinking they are saving cash, but it will run out eventually lol, and then the companies are still going to make their money because its inevitable that people need gas lol. I know that 2.2 billion is like a loaddd of cash, but thats probably chump change to them oil companies. >.<

LOL actually if you want to make a diference to the gas prices, do what us Brits done. lol a few years back a group of people blocked all the lorries from leaving the refinarys. There was an enormous gas shortage, and I remember huuuge ques at the filling station. Once it was gone it was gone, went on for about a week, and people HAD to walk lol. That all happend because of the price rise in gas, which was brought down after all that mayhem lol.

You can read more about it here,

P.S sorry for all the posts, every time I posted I thought of something else to say

lol your great..... I do agree on they will get their money anyway but like you said with those people who stopped them from leaving the refinarys they cant deal with over 2 million people just quiting like you said it would be mahem but to answer your other questions its only for a day.... I think U.S. is easier to scare than the brits.... like it says in that thing it dropped 30 cents over night it doesnt sound like a lot but when your filling your car up it sure does add up.

Haha, yep, 30 cents is a bit when you need to fill up everyday, plus we already pay extorshinate prices for everything else in this world!
