2012 GAS-IN!

Many of you have seen the BS circulating the internet about not buying gas on April 15th....
20ici2q


well, Snopes says that's WRONG!!!!
snopes.com: Don't Buy Gas on April 15


On behalf of IDBracing.com, I suggest doing exactly the opposite!
v2w6tc

PUMP MORE GAS! IT'S SCIENCE! YOU CAN'T ARGUE WITH SCIENCE!

Copy and paste the image, share it on Facebook, tell all your friends! Let's make a difference!

And remember, they couldn't put it on the internet if it wasn't true!

This whole avoid pumping gas thing on any given day is retarded, no one (important) pays attention to it.
1/3 of the people will fill up the night before, another 1/3 will put it off till the day after, and the last 1/3 wouldn't have needed gas anyways. In the end, the same amount is sold. Monthly numbers look the same. And idiots went out of their way.

Yeah, don't fill your car on the 15th.

Let them suffer the economic consequences of loosing you as a customer on the 15th.

That will show them.

Just fill your car on the 14th and... Wait WHAT?

I wonder who's the genius behind this plan

Get out of your car, push it for 1 mile, then decide if gas is worth $4 a gallon.

if you do decide to buy gas that day, be sure to do it at night when the gas in the tanks is cooler and therefore denser so you will get more for your money.

i only fill 2 gallons per day in the car, just enough to get me to work and back because carrying around extra weight in gas hurts my gas mileage. if i get better mileage then they don't get as much of my money!! I also have one of those plugs that equalizes my electrical system plugged in to my cigarette lighter, it gets me an extra 25% on mileage
