FIGHT GREEDY OIL COMPANIES – DON’T DRIVE ON SUNDAY!
Why are we paying more than Three Dollars per Gallon? GREED.
Why is every oil company raking in billions of dollars in profits? GREED.
Why has the current administration allowed this to happen? GREED!
Why are we 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 and the CORRUPT
POLITICIANS THAT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN!
Virtually everyone in elected office, from the President on down, has taken campaign contributions from Oil Companies. Every corporation involved with the production and distribution of oil and gasoline, is reaping huge profits on the backs of the hard-working American People like YOU.
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 $3.00 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?
Have we forgotten the President’s and Vice-President’s involvement with big oil companies before they took office? Have we forgotten that gas prices were about 60% lower before the current administration? Have we forgotton that Enron Executives paid Huge Contributions to get the Current Administration Elected? Why do You continue to lay down and take this where it hurts the most… IN YOUR WALLET!
AVERAGE CITIZENS LIKE YOU CAN BE HEARD!
It’s simple… just Don’t Drive On Sunday. 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!
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 on Sunday, July 30th. The current 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!
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 on one of our NATIONAL RALLY DATES, starting on May 21st and
DON’T DRIVE ON SUNDAY!
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, JULY 30TH!
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 $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!
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.
