Don't pump gas on may 15th April 1997, there was a "gas out" conducted nationwide in protest of gas prices. Gasoline prices dropped 30 cents a gallon overnight.

On May 15th 2007, all internet users are to not go to a gas station in protest of high gas prices. Gas is now over $3.00 a gallon in most places.

There are 73,000,000+ American members currently on the internet network, and the average car takes about 30 to 50 dollars to fill up.

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 May 15th and let's try to put a dent in the Middle Eastern oil industry for at least one day.

I say definitely do this. I am so sick of paying higher gas prices all the time. We are at around $3.03 for REGULAR! How ridiculous is that? Also, just about a month or two ago it was only $2.49 or so, when Spring Break hit, they raised it by around 20-30 cents a gallon. As soon as Spring Break was over (I can only tell this by the thinner traffic lol) the gas went back down now BOOM up it is again. What is it they pay in the oil countries? They pay somthing like $0.20 cents per gallon? Give me a break. DON'T PUMP GAS ON MAY 15TH!! And don't buy it on the 14th either, fill your tank up at a time where you will be able to go without filling up betweenthe 13th and the 17th. They are expecting to have people filling up the day before or the day after, so then it really doesn't hurt them much does it? Go for a little longer period of time...... let that smack them around a bit (metaphorically of course)
