World War 2 poster.

Have you REALLY tried?

Most of us are familiar with the "When you ride alone you ride with Hitler" poster. This one reminds people that millions of GIs are sacrificing much more than the car pooler who must put up with the relative inconvenience of car sharing.

More fascinating WW2 propoganda posters can be viewed at New Hampshire State Library.

Comments:
I think this is a really underutilised meme, especially in the USA.

Patriotism, particularily support for the troops, is one of the few unifying charateristics of the US population, across political, geographic and demographic lines.

A similar, updated and positive campaign could be used to get people taking steps to "save oil for our fight'n boys and girls".
 
I can just see it now: "When you drive you car, you drive with Bin Laden." I like it!

Photoshop, here we come!
