As you may have heard, gas prices are skyrocketing beginning this week and speculation has it the price will not be
going down until the end of summer. I will be planning on participating in the gas out mentioned below, whether or not
it works, we'll see.

Last year on April 30,1999, a gas out was staged across Canada and the U.S. to bring the price of gas down, and it
worked. It's time to do something about it again.

This time, lets make it for three days instead of just one. The oil cartel decided to slow production to drive up gasoline
prices. Lets see how many Canadian\American people we can get to ban together for a three day period in April, NOT TO
BUY ANY GASOLINE, during those three days. LETS HAVE A GAS OUT.

Do not buy any gasoline from APRIL 7, 2000, THROUGH APRIL 9, 2000. Buy what you need before the dates listed
above, or after, but try not to buy any during the GAS OUT. If you want to help, just tell everyone you know and ask
them to do the same.

We brought the prices down once before, and we can do it again! Come on North America lets stand together.

Wouldn't it be a good idea to try and have an "as few gas as possible" approach to the whole thing, and not just on a special day? It would be better for our environment.

Over here in Germany/Austria the prize for gas is approx. 1 $ per liter. Most of it is taxes. But people do use less, because they have to think about how to save energy and money.

Just a thought, Eve

Sure the intentions are good but think of it... if you fill your tank the day before the gasout and maybe take some extra home if you commute then wait a few days then go crazy at the pumps at the end of the gasout you are still using the same amount of gas! The people controling the gas prices know this, they hear about the gasout and anticipate it, they feel no threat that you could put htem out of business because you can't. the reality is you need what they supply!

I think eve is on the right track, just use less, it is better for everybody in the long run. N. Americans pay the least for gas among many countries, now we just have to face the music. Driving your car is really a luxury, if you can't afford it take a bus or your bike, if you commute form a car pool, there are many solutions.

Yes...that's all corrent..we will need to buy gas anyway...but the point is making a point. Our local dealers will get our money anyway but maybe the big wigs and govt. will start thinking.

Nothing ventured...nothing gained!!!

Plus we need to contact car manfacturers regarding OTHER energy sources/research on same, Govt about closed oil fields in texas and oklahoma etc etc etc

And we need to all be creative and save energy!!!!!!
