So you want to boycott the gas stations?

I'm sure you've received the chain letters complaining about the high cost of gasoline, asking us to all band together and not buy gas on a certain day. This is supposed to put a dent in the gas companies pockets. Kind of a "show 'em we're pissed and aren't going to take this lying down" type of action.

*LOL* It's not going to work.

If I were the gas company, you know what I'd do? I'd jack the price of gas up another 20% the day after this boycott. Ha! Jokes on us now isn't it?

There really isn't much we can do about it. The only people who can change it are the governments and they are clearly being paid off by the oil companies to do nothing.

If the cost of gas is really getting to you, re-evaluate your lifestyle and change it so you don't require as much gas.

hi there,

you bet!

Yes, have more car pools, van pools and bus pools!
Companies should put more effort in letting their employees take part in Car Pools, etc.

and getting your vehicles tuned on a regular basis. AAA should have such a program - once every quarter where a member can schedule his/her vehicle to have it tuned.

I agree, we should stick it to the gas companies - we should also boycott Microsoft! Can you believe all the stuff they do that is like monopoly?

I hope you will join me in this!
