I paid exactly...............

Wait for it.......

No difference between when I filled up over the weekend and when I filled up today.

Lame.

OK, thank you. Here are 3 things you can do that might help:
Decrease consumption. Vote for people who will put the brakes on Big Oil and get more mass transportation going. Decrease consumption.

3. Can someone explain the thinking behind that?
Ok so you don't fill up today. Oh Noes? What are the oil companies going to do? Wait a day. You will fill up tomorrow.

They lost nothing. They have us by the short hairs and they know it. Want to do a boycott that makes a difference? Stop using gas.

5. Yeah, it was quite possibly the dumbest logic I've ever heard.
I didn't buy gas yesterday but that's not because I was participating in the boycott, it was because I didn't need it.

8. I filled up the night before...
but I couldn't give up driving the day of the boycott. I had a many errands to run that were very important.

There's very little we can do as the general public other than reduce our driving. For some of us, that isn't going to happen any time soon.
