National Gas Boycott- April 15

Friday, April 8, 2011

I recieved this in an email today:

Subject: Don't pump gas on April 15th

Hello everyone!

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!


  1. Actually, this WON'T make a difference. You're not boycotting, but merely delaying your purchase by a day.
    There are other reasons it won't work. explains them a lot more eloquently than I could:

  2. Good point Donna- and thank you for sharing.

  3. It does make a difference..people are standing united together for what they believe..and nobody can take that away.
    It's also better than showing no support at all!!!
