Lets Boycott the Oil industry!!!
We control the market! Let's find out which Oil company is offering the lowest current prices and Only buy gas from them! Forcing the other companies to lower pricing to regain business and then we do it again!
We can do this!!

Re: Lets Boycott the Oil industry!!!
That's right! One star. Because we all know sanctions don't work because if they did then governments like the US would use them to force their will on other countries. And they would never do that!
A nation divided againts itself cannot stand.
Neither do weak minded people
Its alright though. Let's do nothing and just regret it later. That's probably the easiest thing to do.

Cut the quality! I doubt you and millions of people realise the difference anyway! Buy Chevron with Techron because it cleans your engine. Yeah right! Just like sweet and low is a better alternative to pure sugar.
They are all excuses, nothing more. Just like in Proverbs the sluggard says "I can't go out today, there's a lion out there and he will tear me to pieces"
Just keep justifying your apathy.

I only buy quality, that's why I don't shop at Wal-Mart and I don't buy cheap fuel for my vehicles...if you drive a crappy worn out piece of junk then it probably makes no difference, but I have nice vehicles and I maintain them...

Who ever said anything about "cheap" gas. Maybe this would be easier for you to swallow.
Pick between Chevron, Shell and 76 then go with it. Im sorry I should have clarified I don't use "low quality gas" suppliers either
Arco, 7 Eleven, thrifty gas etc.. ain't on the list

Wow, OP, you're really getting a lot of shit for this thread...you must have hit a nerve.

I'm on board, tho. Walking is fine, been gaining a few from eating "comfort" food anyway. I put minimum $40 a week in my big-ass jeep EVEN THOUGH I take the bus across town to school at night. So, that 40 a week is just getting to places I can walk to anyway. A lot of people spend way more than that.

Luckily, my work is all computer-based now, so don't even need to go make prints or anything.

Think I'll put the $160.00 I'll be saving every month toward new mountain bikes for summer.

What are you going to spend your money on instead, people?

Re: Lets Boycott the Oil industry!!!
My stepdad ran a gas station for years. Speculation and supply and demand affects the larger price changes and they are across the board. The minor differences in the prices you pay at the pump locally are a direct result of your zip code and the local zoning codes. If you buy gas in a highly populated or large commercial area you are going to pay more. It's that simple.

Go ahead. Shop around. I do. It's a great way to practice micro-capitolism. I say micro, because biggest differences you are likely to see across the three or four gas stations in a mile radius is going to be pennies, maybe less than 5 cents per gallon.

Unless everyone in town, in every town in America does it though, (not going to happen) it isn't going to greatly affect multi-billion dollar international companies. That would take a change in global supply or demand or the speculation on those changes.
"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

Thanks for the support. I realize though that its all just a means to an end that wont change though their be a few like us there are still more like him. We have Corrupt politicians because were so full of corrupt citizens and corporations that keep putting them in office. Don,t get me wrong there are a lot of wonderful people out there but its clear where the power really lies.

Unfortunately I commute 170 miles everyday buying gas at $4.15 a gallon lately. Obviously cant sell the house in the current economy and moving closer to work isn't an option since our locations change all the time.

So I figured that If we all chose one company rewarding them for keeping prices low then we can get the point across while still functioning.

The one question I have is how much is too much? Before it was $4.00 PG now that it's past that what's next $5.00? Is that the limit? What if it were $10.00 a gallon what would we do then? Then would we Boycott something?

Gas prices have very little to do with Actual physical Supply and Demand it has to do with Traders on the Market reacting to rumors and information sometimes true. They slow down production to drive up prices and they speed it up to bring it back down. They charge what they know they can get away with. They sell what they dont have and they buy what they will never see.
And we pay the price for it.
