How to fight high fuel prices.

OK PEOPLE; THE TIME HAS COME FOR US TO STOP BEING SUCKERS, AND TO START USING THE POWER WE HAVE AS CONSUMERS! I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE PAYING FOR GAS, BUT SPRINGFIELD, ILLINOIS, 42 MILES NORTH OF HERE, HAS GAS AT $3.49 A GALLON, AND DIESEL FUEL AT $4.00! IT IS A COMBINED EFFORT BY OUR OIL COMPANIES, OUR REFINERIES, AND THE ARABS, TO DESTROY OUR ECONOMY. IT HAS TO STOP NOW! IF THINGS CONTINUE ON THIS PATH THIS SUMMER, WE WILL BE HEADED INTO A MAJOR DEPRESSION. ONLY, THIS TIME, WE WILL NOT HAVE THE MANUFACTURING BASE WE USED TO HAVE, AND NO ONE WILL BE ABLE TO AFFORD THE EVERYDAY NEEDS OF LIFE! DON'T GO BY THE OLD WAY OF THINKING, AND BELIEVE THAT IT IS JUST HIGH GAS PRICES; FOOD IS CLIMBING EVERYDAY, AND EVERYTHING THAT NEEDS TO BE SHIPPED WILL GROW IN COST, RIGHT ALONG WITH OUR FUEL!

STOP DRIVING ANYWHERE YOU CAN WALK TO. STOP DRIVING ANYWHERE YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO TO. USE THE CHEAPEST FORM OF TRANSPORTATION YOU HAVE; IF YOU HAVE A MOTORCYCLE, WITH SPRING COMING, DRESS WARM AND RIDE IT. IF IT IS NOT ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY, STAY OFF THE ROAD. OUR POWER LIES IN OUR CONSUMPTION; IF WE CUT OUR CONSUMPTION, THEIR PROFITS WILL NOSE DIVE, CAUSING THEM TO BE FORCED TO RESPOND BY LOWERING THE PRICES! AND, THIS TIME, DON'T START DRIVING EVERYWHERE AGAIN IF PRICES GET DOWN TO $3.00; KEEP AVOIDING THE PUMPS UNTIL GAS PRICES REACH THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF $1.49! WE CAN DO THIS, WE HAVE THE POWER, AS WE ARE THE ONES WHO FILL THEIR POCKETBOOKS, AND WE CAN EMPTY THEIR POCKETS JUST AS EASILY AS THEY CAN EMPTY OUR WALLETS! GET BEHIND THIS, PASS IT AROUND, AND START CAUSING THEM THE SAME PAIN THEY ARE CAUSING US! IF NOT; BE WELL PREPARED TO PAY OVER $4.00 A GALLON FOR GAS THIS SUMMER, MAYBE $5.00. THEY ARE USING THE SAME PRACTICE THAT ALLOWED GAS TO RISE FROM $1.49 THREE YEARS AGO; RAISE THE PRICES UNTIL THEY CAUSE EVERYONE TO QUIT DRIVING, THEN DROP THEM 25 CENTS A GALLON AND EVERYONE WILL STOP COMPLAINING. DON'T LET IT WORK THIS TIME; STAND UP AND STOP USING UNNECESSARY GAS! PROVE TO THEM THAT WE ARE SMARTER THAN THEY THINK WE ARE, QUIT ALLOWING THEM TO SCREW US, JUST BECAUSE OF GREED! STAND UP, BE AN AMERICAN, AND PASS THIS PAIN BACK TO THEM!
