THE HIGH PRICE OF GAS AND OIL
DON'T DRIVE ON SUNDAY
SUNDAY MAY 18, 2008!
Why are we Paying TOO MUCH for GASOLINE... AGAIN?
HAVE WE LEARNED NO LESSONS OVER THE LAST TWO YEARS?
Why is every oil company raking in billions of dollars in profits... AGAIN?
THE OIL COMPANIES ARTIFICIALLY MANIPULATE THE SUPPLY OF GASOLINE and WE WON'T CURB OUR DEMAND FOR IT!
Why Doesn't Anyone Do Anything About Our Continuing Gas Crisis???
YOU CAN... DON'T DRIVE ON SUNDAY - NATIONAL PROTEST SUNDAY MAY 18, 2008!
Why are we still at war in Iraq? Where is the Oil that our soldiers were sent to protect? Who's reaping all the Oil Profits at the cost of American Lives?
GREEDY OIL COMPANIES THAT HAVE REAPED BILLIONS IN RECORD PROFITS and the CORRUPT POLITICIANS THAT CONTINUE ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN!
Saudi Citizens pay .61 Cents per Gallon for their gas. Venezuelan Citizens pay .13 Cents per Gallon for their gas. American Citizens pay more than $3.30 per Gallon. WHY DO WE CONTINUE TO SUBSIDIZE THE SAUDIS AND VENEZULANS?
WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE? WHY AREN'T YOU DOING SOMETHING ABOUT THIS MESS?
AVERAGE CITIZENS LIKE YOU CAN BE HEARD!
It's simple… just Don't Drive On Sunday - NATIONAL PROTEST SUNDAY MAY 18, 2008! Park your car and stay home. Spend quality time with your family. Sleep in… Read a book… Watch TV… Do what ever you want to do…
JUST DON'T DRIVE ON SUNDAY - NATIONAL PROTEST SUNDAY MAY 18, 2008!
WE, THE CONSUMERS OF GASOLINE NEED TO TAKE PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THIS CRISIS AND CUT BACK ON DRIVING OUR CARS! POST YOUR PLEDGE IN OUR FORUM
You don't have to send us money! You don't have to vote. You don't have to write your representatives in Washington. You don't have to call anyone or even send an e-mail to participate in this project. You really don't have to do anything… Just stay home and DON'T DRIVE ON SUNDAY - NATIONAL PROTEST SUNDAY MAY 18, 2008!
DON'T DRIVE ON SUNDAY - NATIONAL PROTEST SUNDAY MAY 18, 2008!
13% of weekly miles are driven on Sunday. Reducing that by just a few points will have a huge impact. According to the D.O.T.'s
Bureau of Transportation Statistics,
"U.S. daily travel averages 11 billion miles a day - almost 40 miles per person per day".
Assuming YOUR CAR averages 20 miles per gallon, YOU would save about two gallons of gas if you Don't Drive On Sunday!
IMAGINE IF MILLIONS OF DRIVERS PARKED THEIR CARS ON SUNDAY - THE 3RD SUNDAY OF EVERY MONTH IN 2008! IMAGINE THE POWERFUL MESSAGE WE WILL SEND IF WE PARK OUR CARS AND DON'T DRIVE THOSE 12 SUNDAYS in 2008!
Imagine if One Million Cars that would otherwise drive those 40 miles, stayed parked on Sunday… just one Sunday. That would save Two Million Gallons of gasoline nationwide. Your Car, as a part of one million cars, would help take about 6.5 Million Dollars out of the retail Oil Economy.
ONE CAR -- ONE PERSON -- MANY VOICES!
Imagine Ten Million (10,000,000) Cars staying home, just one Sunday, saving Twenty Million (20,000,000) Gallons of gas. At the national average of $3.25 per gallon, this would take more than Sixty Five Million ($65,000,000.00) Retail Dollars out of the Oil Companies greedy hands. That just might get someone's attention in Washington, if not in the Persian Gulf. But it only takes One Car… One Person… YOU! And You really don't have to do anything…
JUST DON'T DRIVE ON SUNDAY - NATIONAL PROTEST SUNDAY MAY 18, 2008!
This project... call it a protest or a movement of sorts... was created with the hopes that one person can make a difference. That people who are tired of the Status Quo with our Government and the profiteering by the Oil Companies can make a statement. You can be heard... and You don't have to do anything... just Don't Drive On Sunday.
Call to the Nation's Churches. We want to urge the Nation's Clergy to organize Busses, Car Pools or simply have parishioners Walk to Church. What a show of faith if we see full Churches with empty parking lots, starting with the NATIONAL PROTEST SUNDAY MAY 18, 2008! The continuing gas crisis affects everyone in this country, especially the hard working and church going people of America. We need everyone's support to make a stand... Don't Drive On Sunday!
According to The Barna Group, more than 45% of Adult Americans attend church in a typical weekend.
The CIA's World Factbook lists approximately 200,000,000 adults in our population. Which comes out to around 90,000,000 Americans who go to church in aproximately 40,000,000 vehicles each burning 2 gallons of gas or more. That's more than 80,000,000 gallons of gasoline, Just Going To Church Every Sunday!!!
HOW HIGH WILL GAS HAVE TO BE BEFORE YOU CAN'T DRIVE TO CHURCH ANYMORE? $5.00... $8.00... $10.00 per Gallon?
PARK YOUR CAR AND DON'T DRIVE ON SUNDAY - NATIONAL PROTEST SUNDAY MAY 18, 2008!!!
