Default Gas-out? (Not my post...)

NOTE: Not my screaming, I just copied and pasted. This was going fine
until the OP brought up the Administration controlling gas prices. Seems
to me I remember Nixon doing this. Can anybody say, "Rubber Band"?



IT HAS BEEN CALCULATED THAT IF EVERYONE IN THE UNITED STATES DID NOT
PURCHASE A DROP OF GASOLINE FOR ONE DAY AND ALL AT THE SAME TIME, THE
OIL COMPANIES WOULD CHOKE ON THEIR STOCKPILES.

AT THE SAME TIME IT WOULD HIT THE ENTIRE INDUSTRY WITH A NEt LOSS
OF OVER 4.6 BILLION DOLLARS WHICH AFFECTS THE BOTTOM LINES OF THE OIL
COMPANIES.

THEREFORE Sept 10TH HAS BEEN FORMALLY DECLARED "STICK IT TO THEM
DAY" AND THE PEOPLE OF THIS NATION SHOULD NOT BUY A SINGLE DROP OF GASOLINE
THAT DAY.

THE ONLY WAY THIS CAN BE DONE IS IF YOU FORWARD THIS E-MAIL TO AS
MANY PEOPLE AS YOU CAN AND AS QUICKLY AS YOU CAN TO GET THE WORD OUT.

WAITING ON THIS ADMINISTRATION TO STEP IN AND CONTROL THE
PRICES IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE REDUCTION AND
CONTROL IN PRICES THAT THE ARAB NATIONS PROMISED TWO WEEKS AGO?

REMEMBER ONE THING, NOT ONLY IS THE PRICE OF GASOLINE GOING UP
BUT AT THE SAME TIME AIRLINES ARE FORCED TO RAISE THEIR PRICES, TRUCKING
COMPANIES ARE FORCED TO RAISE THEIR PRICES WHICH EFFECTS PRICES ON EVERYTHING
THAT IS SHIPPED. THINGS LIKE FOOD, CLOTHING, BUILDING MATERIALS, MEDICAL
SUPPLIES ETC. WHO PAYS IN THE END? WE DO!

WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. IF THEY DON'T GET THE MESSAGE AFTER ONE
DAY, WE WILL DO IT AGAIN AND AGAIN.



SO DO YOUR PART AND SPREAD THE WORD. FORWARD

You know this has been going on for some time. It just keeps coming
back in different forms.

But the next day everyone will buy more to make up for it unless there is no
driving on Sept 10.

Yeah, I know. It pops up every time the price of gas rises more then a few
cents a gallon.

But, in theory, economically, there would be an effect on the gas
companies. They project that they will sell x gallons per day. When this
expectation is not met, what happens is the trucks and other delivery
methods expect to pump out x*days gallons through the system. Since they
DIDN'T sell x gallons on Sept 10, it does create a backup in the system.
IF everyone buying fuel stopped on Sept 10, then it would mess up their
delivery system by millions of gallons.


However, like so and so said (bgm?) people would make up by buying more
the day before or the day after, hence the next deilvery would still be
the same. It needs to be spread over a number of days, say a weekend, and
as suggested everyone STOP any extra driving, or carpool, or bicycle, etc
to NOT use those gallons that would put a crimp in the delivery system and
cause a backup at the terminals.

I don't think the Administration is controlling gas price. But it's definite
doing things to help gas price to go up, such as starting a war, make
enemies with oil exporting countries, etc.

Hey, don't forget about causing hurricanes. The government controls

Well, no.

That "calculation" was invented by an economic ignoramus.

Investors/speculators would snap up the surplus at bargain prices, driving
demand and price back up again, at which time they'd sell at a profit.

Oil companies do not set prices. Why is this so difficult for so many
people to understand? Nobody's ever heard of commodities trading, or
Mercantile Exchanges?

If you're really concerned, tell the US government to stop meddling in
other countries' affairs, and to reduce regulation and legislation that
creates artifical shortages. All these things dramatically drive up market
bids for oil.
