It's easy for me to boycott - unless I have to go out of town which isn't very often, I only put about 5 miles/week on my van - one of the advantages of living in a small town and being able to walk everywhere!

Hey wasn't today the day when we're not supposed to by gas? :-?

Yup, today is boycott day!

Waddaya know, I didn't buy gas today....

Not on purpose or anything. :-b

yeah i saw a huge report how boycott day never works and only hurts small mom and pop gas station business owners...

and i've seen how the prices are never affected... we will just end up buying more gas later...

that pic is hilarious :-b

The thing is, what difference does it make to Texaco if Sales are down on Tuesday, especially since they'll probably be up on Wednesday as the people who "boycotted" gas up now that they've "made their point"?

I applaud their sentiment, but their logic's FUBAR.

For a boycott like that to have any measurable effect it would have to be for much longer than a day. In many parts of America that's simply not realistic, and even in areas where people have options other than driving (car pooling, mass transit, etc.) those options have gone largely ignored since, well, ever.

If Americans wanna reduce their dependence on "the pump" it's gonna take a fundamental change in the way we think, and unfortunately I don't see that change coming any time soon.
