National Gas Boycott- April 15
I recieved this in an email today:
Subject: Don't pump gas on April 15th
In April 1997, there was a "gas out" conducted nationwide in protest of gas prices. Because of that, gasoline prices dropped 30 cents a gallon overnight.
On April 15th 2011, all internet users are to not go to a gas station in protest of high gas prices. Gas is now over $1.20 a liter in most places.
If all 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 April 15th and let's try to put a dent in the Middle Eastern oil industry for at least one day.
Let's all do our part and say we don't like what we are seeing!
