No, it won't. If you drive 200 miles on average per
week, you use X amount of fuel. If everyone refuses to
buy gas on, say, Tuesday, they still drive the same
amount of distance and consume the same amount of
fuel. Therefore, they will buy MORE fuel on Monday or
Wednesday. Now, what was this plan again? Plan Nine
from Outer Space?

That's like saying that the Arabian Islamic Extremists
have "conditioned" us that the World Trade Center
attack on September 11 was necessary and we deserved
it. Wait a minute, Ted Turner said that, didn't he?

Not true. ExxonMobil wholesales gas to mom-and-pop
stations, convenience stores, and so on. So when you
think you're "hurting" them, you're actually helping

And remember, send one dollar to each of the
individuals on the list below with the now, "Please

must travel all year long.
