-----Original Message-----   FW: Boycott! One gas company at a time

Okay for all you generation X'ers, here is your opportunity to participate in a BOYCOTT ala 60's-do your part!

I'm sure you'd heard about the "gas-out" on April 30. Word spread so fast on e-mail that the whole nation knows about it and the media picked up on it. However, gas companies weren't scared because they wouldn't lose sales, since everybody was buying gas on April 29 and May 1.

So, a Las Vegas radio station has come up with a better idea to take things one step further. The radio station has suggested to boycott a particular company, and refuse to buy from them until prices get back down to normal. The radio station picked Chevron, so in order to make this work, you need to stop buying from Chevron until their prices become normal again. Maybe a severe loss of business will force them to take action in order to drop prices and regain business, which will force changes by the rest of the companies across the board to remain competitive.

Sick of paying close to $2 a gallon? This can work, but you have to do two things:
1. Do not shop at Chevron
2. Send this on to everybody you know

The reason Chevron was picked because they were one of 2 companies who started this whole thing. Chevron raised its prices because it shut down one of its refineries and said that they couldn't keep up with the demand.

They used the supply and demand theory. They DEMAND more money because they don't have the SUPPLY that its competitors have.
