I wonder if this will work.  This piece of net-advice promises we can force gas prices to lower if we stop buying gas from the top company: Exxon Mobil (which also owns Esso).  The writer says:

THIS IS NOT THE 'DON'T BUY' GAS FOR ONE DAY, BUT IT WILL SHOW YOU HOW WE CAN GET GAS BACK DOWN TO $1.30 PER GALLON.

   This was sent by a retired Coca Cola executive.  It came from one of his engineer buddies who retired from Halliburton.  If you are tired of the gas prices going up AND they will continue to rise this summer, take time to read this please.

   Phillip Hollsworth offered this good idea. This makes MUCH MORE SENSE than the "don't buy gas on a certain day" campaign that was going around last April or May!   It's worth your consideration.  Join the resistance!!!!

   I hear we are going to hit close to $ 4.00 a gallon by next summer, and it might go higher!!  Want gasoline prices to come down?

   We need to take some united action.  The oil companies just laughed at that because they knew we wouldn 't continue to "hurt" ourselves by refusing to buy gas.

   It was more of an inconvenience to us than it was a problem for them.
   BUT, whoever thought of this idea has come up with a plan that can
really work.  Please read on and join with us!

   By now you're probably thinking gasoline priced at about $2.00 is super cheap.  Me too!  It is currently $3.19 for regular unleaded in my town.

   Now that the oil companies and the OPEC nations have conditioned us to think that the cost of a gallon of gas is CHEAP at $1.50 - $1.75, we need to take aggressive action to teach them that BUYERS control the marketplace..not sellers.

   With the price of gasoline going up more each day, we consumers need to take action.

   The only way we are going to see the price of gas come down is if we hit someone in the pocketbook by not purchasing their gas!  And, we can do that WITH OUT hurting ourselves.

   How?  Since we all rely on our cars, we can't just stop buying gas.

   But we CAN have an impact on gas prices if we all act together to force a price war.

   Here's the idea: For the rest of this year, DON'T purchase ANY gasoline from the two biggest companies (which now are one), EXXON and MOBIL.

   If they are not selling any gas, they will be inclined to reduce their
prices.
   If they reduce their prices, the other companies will have to follow
suit.

   But to have an impact, we need to reach literally millions of Exxon and Mobil gas buyers.  It's really simple to do!  Now, don't wimp out on me at this point...keep reading and I'll explain how simple it is to reach millions of people!!
