Tired of high fuel prices? Enough is enough!

Fact: The CEO of Exxon/Mobil has a $400 million retirement.

Fact: Exxon/Mobil is now reporting an $8 billion profit per Quarter.

Fact: There is no gas shortage. I know for a fact that there are hundreds of barges of fuel staged in the Gulf of Mexico and the Mississippi River. As long as the fuel is not on land, it don't have to be reported. Therefore, claiming a shortage, and raising the prices.

Now, you know why fuel is projected to be $4.00 a gallon by next summer.

Fact:Everything you buy is shipped by truck at least three times before it gets to the consumer. The price of fuel plays a major part in the price of everything you buy. This means that the price of everything goes up, but your paycheck stays the same. Something must be done

Solution: Boycott Exxon/Mobil

Exxon/Mobil is soo big and strong, that they set they market. When the level in their storage tanks rise, and profits fall, so will prices.
We are the strongest force (the consumer).

It's simple, Buy products other than Exxon/Mobile products. It's that easy

As a truck driver, I use 140 gals of fuel a day. Keep in mind that there are about. 36 million trucks on the road in the US and Canada.
Many of us have been participating in the boycott for about a month. Keep in mind that this will be a slow process. The more people that participate, the faster th results.
Please, participate and spread the word.

Final note:

Please remember, that the fuel industry is Free Enterprise. The government does not regulate it, and shouldn't. If the government did regulate it, they could also regulate the profits of any business, no matter how big or small. This is not a good thing!
Please remember, that you are the strongest force in the free world, the consumer.
That's right, the average, everyday working person. We need to use this force to make a change.
Please don't feel like you don't make a difference, because you do. Every time that someone buys fuel and oil other than Exxon/Mobil, you have made a difference.
There is no legitimate reason for fuel to be over $2.00 a gallon.

average fuel usage per week:

100 cars = 6,000 gals
100 trucks = 98,000 gals

You see? We can make a difference! Please tell everone you know.

My question: Where is the outrage from the 70's?!?!
I guess everyone can afford gas these days.
