Im from England, and I don't drive.
Don't pump gas on MAY 15th
In 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 internet users 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.
There are 73,000,000+ American members currently on the internet network, and the average car takes about 30 to 50 dollars to fill up.
If al l users did not go to the pump on the 15th, it would take $2,292,000, 000.00 (that's almost 3 BILLION) out of the oil companies 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 wouldn't) resend this to all your contact list. With it saying, ''Don't pump gas on May 15th"
SPREAD THE WORD!

1) How about tomorrow Americans drive the speed limit for a day?
2) Dude, gas in the mid-90s was CHEAP. In around 1996 gas was ~$1/gallon in Ohio when I was in h.s. ONE FREAKIN' DOLLAR!!! Cheaper than milk! But I digress...
3) There's no comparison between Europe and the U.S. The plethora of SUVs and other gas guzzlers do increase demand for oil. However, the U.S. is just a *teeny* bigger in land size, the avg commute is longer, and our mass transit system as a whole sucks (with a few major cities being exceptions).
my contribution is to get a 2007 Kawasaki Z1000 motorcycle sometime soon, 40mpg and tons o fun
Perhaps if so much effort was put into stopping people driving gas-guzzling SUV's then gas usage wouldn't be as much a problem as it is. Hell, the technology is ready for cars which don't even need a fossil-fuel source but the constant use of combustion engines means the oil companies have more than enough incentive to keep selling the stuff and more than enough money to keep the companies making these cars subsidised (unofficially of course).
Either way; I don't drive so I don't care.
i did the maths for another forum, if you take the price per litre in the uk to be 92.9p, then on average we pay $7 a gallon. so no complaing americansOriginally Posted by DRMARIO
We pay more for everything - and we still have more money than the U.S.
Go figure ;o
