How to Drop the Gas Prices Using Math

By on June 11, 2008


I received this email today from my sis.  It’s one of those chain emails.  You know, “send this out to 6 people and all your wishes will come true.”  This one, however, not only has a purpose, it also includes some pretty cool math.  Look, I don’t know your politics, but I do know this: nobody likes the gas prices.  As you read on, you’ll see that someone actually put some exponent knowledge to good use.  Do what you will about the info, but if you want to pass it on, just cut and paste, baby.  Forgive the wacky formatting…

Subject: Dropping Gas Prices!!! please read



 This was sent by a retired Coca Cola executive. It came from one of

his engineer buddies who retired from Halliburton. If you are tired

of the gas prices going up AND they will continue to rise this summer, 

take time to read this please.

Phillip Hollsworth offered this good idea.

This makes MUCH MORE SENSE than the “don’t buy gas on a certain

 day” campaign that was going around last April or May!

It’s worth your consideration. Join the resistance!!!!

I hear we are going to hit close to $ 5.00 a gallon by next summer,

and it might go higher!! Want gasoline prices to come down?

We need to take some intelligent, united action. The oil companies

just laughed at that because they knew we wouldn’t continue to

“hurt” ourselves by refusing to buy gas.

 It was more of an inconvenience to us than it was a problem for



BUT, whoever thought of this idea has come up with a plan that can

really work. Please read on and join with us!


By now you’re probably thinking gasoline priced at about $2.00 is

super cheap. Me too! It is currently $3.79 for regular unleaded in

 my town.

 Now that the oil companies and the OPEC nations have conditioned us

 to think that the cost of a gallon of gas is CHEAP at $1.50 –

 $1.75, we need to take aggressive action to teach them that BUYERS control

the marketplace…not sellers.

 With the price of gasoline going up more each day, we consumers

 need to take action. The only way we are going to see the price of gas come down is if we hit someone in the pocketbook by not purchasing their gas! And, we can do that WITHOUT hurting ourselves.

How? Since we all rely on our cars, we can’t just stop buying gas. But we CAN have an impact on gas prices if we all act together to force a price war.

Here’s the idea: For the rest of this year, DON’T purchase ANY

gasoline from the two biggest companies (which now are one), EXXON

and MOBIL.

If they are not selling any gas, they will be inclined to reduce

their prices. If they reduce their prices, the other companies will

have to follow suit.

But to have an impact, we need to reach literally millions of Exxon

and Mobil gas buyers. It’s really simple to do! Now, don’t wimp out

on me at this point…keep reading and I’ll explain how simple it

 is to reach millions of people!!

I am sending this note to 30 people. If each of us send it to at

least ten more (30 x 10 = 300) … and those 300 send it to at

least ten more (300 x 10 = 3,000)…and so on, by the time the message

reaches the sixth group of people, we will have reached over THREE

MILLION consumers. If those three million get excited and pass this on to ten friends each, 

then 30 million people will have been contacted!

If it goes one level further, you guessed it….. THREE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE!!!

Again, all you have to do is send this to 10 people. That’s all!

If you don’t understand how we can reach 300 million and all you

have to do is send this to 10 people…. Well, let’s face it, you just

aren’t a mathematician. But I am, so trust me on this one.

How long would all that take? If each of us sends this e-mail out

to ten more people within one day of receipt, all 300 MILLION people

could conceivably be contacted within the next 8 days !!!

 I’ll bet you didn’t think you and I had that much potential, did


Acting together we can make a difference.

If this makes sense to you, please pass this message on. I suggest



Keep it going!!!
