-----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
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.
