Hello everyone, I received this email a while back and thought I would share it in hopes it might actually make a difference. Normally I try to support Canadian companies but after reading this I decided to revise that thinking.
Email as follows:
We hear that the price of gas will climb to approximately $1.42 per litre by this summer. Do you want the price of gas to go down? IT IS POSSIBLE! Last year, a few suggestions were made, for instance: « Do not buy gas on certain days»! Gas companies had a good laugh, as they knew that the gas that was not purchased on Monday would be purchased on Tuesday. At best, it was an inconvenience for them, but not a problem.
This idea is suggested:
DO NOT BUY ANY GAS FROM the two largest companies (who are now only ONE)
PETRO-CANADA and SHELL.
As we all need our vehicles, and we cannot simply stop buying gas. However, we can have a significant impact on the price of gas.
IF WE ACT TOGETHER to initiate a PRICE WAR!!! Think about it! If the major gas companies do not sell gas, they will unavoidably lower their prices and this will immediately result in a PRICE WAR.
Now the email went on with a bunch of other blah, blah, blah, but I have actually implemented this into my daily gas buying experiences, as wonderful as they are.
So with a mighty mid-finger salute to the politicians and oil companies hopefully this strategy can work and personally I’d like to burry a few of them and see how long they take to turn into oil themselves.
