Stop Getting Hosed!
It's Time To Bring Back The Great Gas Protest Of 2001!
By Mike (I'm Taking The Bus) Lipshultz
first said it in 2001 in this article (http://www.biznetonline.com/05-01/gas.htm),
and it is even more true today. We
need a gas protest that will work, and the BizNet OnLine Magazine's Great Gas
Protest, is one that can work. But
first lets look at why gas prices are so high!
are gas prices so high? Look we are
based in a small town in Arizona. At
the time of this article, gas in this town is 25 cents more then in Los Angeles
California, and Southern California is considered one of the most expensive gas
markets. And lets not forget that
California has about 50 cents more tax per gallon then Arizona does, and the
list goes on. So why is gas so
expensive. For the most part the
answer is "BECAUSE"!
do you mean "BECAUSE"!. Simply
put there are no laws against it, and the gas companies know we can not simply
stop buying gas., That we must still find ways of getting that gas we need to
run our lives.
lets fight back. This gas protest
was designed to work, by still letting the consumer buy gas, while still hitting
the gas companies where it hurts. In
the wallet. Ready????
Here it is:
BizNet OnLine Magazine's Great Gas Protest!
now you’re ready to believe that we are getting hosed. If not do some more
research, and then come on back. If you’re ready now to do something to stop
this rip off, then read on..
you imagine what would happen to one of those gas companies if for a full month,
their income fell to Nothing, Zip, Nada, A Big Zero?
is the deal, don't do any business for a full month, with one particular brand,
and then move on to the next brand and so on.
Unless the big gas companies want to see their stations put on a
permanent boycott, they had better wake up.
idea is very workable. It just
needs the right timing. We need
time to get the word out, and a schedule to go on.
the word out!
a copy of this article to every person you know.
A time table.
First strike, January 1, 2006!
This gives us the time to alert everyone.
Starting on January 1st, we boycott the first gas company:
Arco and BP (BP petroleum) For the full month of June don't go into any Arco or BP Stations. Not even for food. Let the place grow cobwebs.
Then in February we move on to the next company, Chevron!
the pattern. Every month, we move to the next company.
We just go in alphabetical order. One
by one, every company gets hit.
this does not work, we just change the rules.
Instead of one month we go 6 months.
about it. If we show that everyone in the United States can pull
together, and stay out of the "station of the month", for the full
month, the big oil companies will know we can go 6 months.
The big oil companies know we can't go with out gas. What we need to show them is we can go without their brand of gas. Hose us on the price, and your competition gets our business. If all the gas companies band together, we band together, and one by one, stop doing business with them. After they see that for them to band together one or more of them is going to go under, they will start
to realize that the American Public can still make their wishes heard with their purchasing dollars!
get the word out. Starting January
1, 2006, Arco and BP gas stations become ghost towns for 30 days!
this country was founded by protest. Think
of this as a modern and legal "Boston Tea Party"
