An e-mail message is being forwarded around the nation by people calling for a unified gasoline price protest next month. The electronic chain letter urges people not to buy gas between April 7th and 9th, but to fill up before or after those dates. One industry official in Iowa says a similar e-mail-organized protest last year fizzled since it made no economic sense.Ron Marr is executive vice president of Petroleum Marketers of Iowa says the move justs shifts the demand for gas to another day and doesn’t impact the supply. He says conservation is the key. Marr says many people may harken back to decades past when they had to think a little before starting up the car.Marr says when inflation is taken into account, the current gas prices really aren’t all that bad.He says some foreign countries are seeing gas at well over five dollars a gallon.
