    Gas Prices-Let's try this

    >This makes more sense than the don't buy gas on a certain day routine that was going around in April or May. Gasoline Prices!

    Whoever started this has a good point.
    >
    >By now you're probably thinking gasoline priced at about $1.49 is cheap. Me
    >too! As it is now $1.58 for regular unleaded. 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 less than $1.50, we need to try an aggressive response.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 don't buy it.

    But, that's not really a practical option since we all have come to rely on our cars. But we CAN have an impact on gas prices if we all act together.
    >
    Here's the idea - For the rest of this year, don't purchase gasoline from
    >the two biggest companies (which now are one), EXXON and MOBIL. If they are
    >not selling, they should be inclined to reduce their prices - and if they
    >reduce their prices the other companies will too. But to have an impact, we
    >need to reach literally millions of users. But it IS... doable!
    >
    >I am sending this note to 42 people. If each of you send it to at least 10
    >more ...and those 10 send it to at least 10 more ... and soon by the time
    >the message reaches the sixth iteration we will have
    >reached over one million consumers. Acting together we can make a difference

      You have to look what your getting for your money.Thats even on the state level also.Some states have worse budgets then the feds.

      I really have not figure out the SSI myself.There are some people that can't save a damn time in this world.

      All I had last year was a big ass write off.I will never seen it again.

    • bravo...finally someone w/ the smarts to tell it like it is........i think i'll have another hit on that nice note!!!!!!!

    • greenspans the idiot and yer a welfare loser.....boo hoo....i'm rich sunny boy.....go get some more food stamps

    • That's what Californians say about gray davis..
      You can't trust him. His and dems no energy policy or foresight caused the blackouts. He has the power to freeze energy prices as Governor of state. He knows the consequences of doing so, that's why he's squealing like a pig under a gate for G. W. to make the big mistake. G.W. is much too wise for that political scam job . By the way, oil/energy people comprise a few million people who work for a living.
