Re: NATIONAL GAS-OUT
Kaboz18, I posted a note on March 7th that responded to the National Gas-Out.
Here it is: "Hi everyone, this may not be the forum, but I have to vent. I read in several posting about a gas boycott scheduled for April 7th through the 9th. In my opinion, that's not going to work too well. Instead we should boycott one company (say Chevron) indefinitely, then that may shift competition. Hopefully the price may drop. The boycott could last months and we could fill up our vehicles at another station. If this seems like a worthwhile idea, spread the word and begin immediately. It would be interesting to see how the giant oil mongrel would react.
I hate to sound like a broken record and everyone on the forum has my apology for that, but this is too close to home. There's not much we can do except to make it clear that we're fed up. It would be interesting to read the oil companies financial statements at the end of year (profits & revenues). The automotive industry did it to us back in 1993-1994 (prices never stop rising, 40% - 60% increase in a couple of years) and look at what we're paying for our vehicles, today. Everyone forgot about that spike. The industry just slid-it-in and we took it right in the rear.... Man I'm beginning to feel like a person from the house of ill-repute.
By the way, I will participate. And folks, sorry for sounding upset
