Dont pump gas on may 15!!
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 facebook 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.
The average car takes about 20 to 30 dollars to fill up.
If all facebook members did not go to the pump on the 15th, it would possibly 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 event repost it with ‘Don’t pump gas on May 15th
If anyone went and looked at this you would see that there was no gas boycott in April 1997. Since that didn’t happen there is no way gas prices dropped 30 cents. Secondly anyone who know anything about economics realizes that oil is inelastic meaning that the price does not fluctuate according to consumers tastes but rather stays stable because oil/gas is always in demand.
Lastly there is no proof whatsoever that not going one day to the pumps is gonna cost them any more money. This extends to almost anything. You are not costing them any money if you pay for something on Tuesday that you would have bought Monday.
If you really wanted to change something, go lobby your congressmen to subsidize solar power, or invest more funding into wind turbines. Perhaps lowering your oil consumption for more than a day ( big surprise there) would be more effective than a one day temper tantrum.
A story about a dumb doctor. Nope he’s not being sued for malpractice, but something far more hilarious, and at the same time disturbing. While on a costumed themed pub-crawl, a doctor dressed like Captain America asked women to touch his burrito. Unfortunately for him the burrito was in his crotch and the women called the police. After being arrested he tried to flush a joint down the toilet. What an idiot.
