So have you gotten this email from every single person you know?
IT HAS BEEN CALCULATED THAT IF EVERYONE IN THE UNITED STATES DID NOT PURCHASE A DROP OF GASOLINE FOR ONE DAY AND ALL AT THE SAME TIME, THE OIL COMPANIES WOULD CHOKE ON THEIR STOCKPILES.
AT THE SAME TIME IT WOULD HIT THE ENTIRE INDUSTRY WITH A NET LOSS OF OVER 4.6 BILLION DOLLARS WHICH AFFECTS THE BOTTOM LINES OF THE OIL COMPANIES.
THEREFORE MAY 19TH HAS BEEN FORMALLY DECLARED “STICK IT UP THEIR BEHINDS DAY” AND THE PEOPLE OF THIS NATION SHOULD NOT BUY A SINGLE DROP OF GASOLINE THAT DAY.
Sounds great, doesn’t it? Taking a day to show those big mean oil companies how unhappy we are about gas prices? Yeah, well, you might want to read this first before you bother participating.
Hell, you should read it before another one of you people forward that stupid email to me. As I’ve explained dozens of times already it won’t make a damned bit of difference. I really wish people would check these emails out before they forward them to everyone they know. This one is so widespread that the local news channels are even talking about it like it’s worth considering.
The sad part is this isn’t the first time it’s been tried. It didn’t work then, it won’t work now because it’s based on a flawed premise. I really wish folks would check these stories out before forwarding them all over the damned place.
