It's time we did something about the price of gasoline in America!
We are all sick and tired of high prices and being treated like pawns to
serve the oil company's "bottom line!" Those of us that remember the
"shortages" of 1973 and 1979 saw a different tactic, same result; at
that time they created a shortage and we then didn't care what price the
gasoline was, as long as we could get it. But, as any chess player
knows, pawns "with attitude" can win the game over larger forces.
If there were just ONE day when no one purchased any gasoline,
prices could drop drastically. The so-called oil cartel has decided to
slow production by some two million barrels per day to drive up the
price. I have decided to see how many Americans we can get to NOT BUY
ANY GASOLINE on one particular day! Let's have a GAS OUT! Do not buy
any gasoline on FRIDAY APRIL 30, 1999!!!!! Buy on Thursday before, or
Saturday after. Do not buy any gasoline on FRIDAY, APRIL 30, 1999.
Do you want to help? Send this message to everyone you know. Ask
them to do the same. All we need is a few million to participate in
order to make a difference. We CAN make a difference.

Thank You
One of the Pawns
