Pointless.

All that "lost" money will be made back the next day. The only way to make a difference would be to NOT DRIVE AT ALL.

Actually, the money has already been made by the oil company once the gas station received the delivery. The oil company doesn't care one way or another if you buy gas on a single day or not...they've already made their cut.

The gas station will then get their cut either the day before or within a day or two after the magic boycott.

It's amazing how far common sense has declined....

For all of the naysayers, how would you go about petitioning gas prices?

If everyone didn't go get gas in America for 7 days straight, we would be in control of the gas prices because the oil companies would lose a lot of money since there are oil tankers shipped out everyday to refineries to be refined and would put a huge backup on them do they would basically be giving gas away since they would have no place to put it

Yes, I know. But the gas station won't buy more gas if the gas they have hasn't been sold. If this goes on, it will affect the oil company. which is why I said the only way to make an impact would be to "simply" not drive and not use gas.

Continuing the same driving habits will continue the need for fuel, no matter what day you buy gas on.

Re: Listen up!!! Gas prices!!!

So how are the oil companies hurt by this - and how are they getting "the big middle finger"?

So they don't get your dollar on April 15 - instead they get it on April 14 or April 16. They still get your dollar. They don't get the "almost $3 billion" on April 15 - but they get 'almost 6 billion on April 16' then, so what? It's not like they calculate earnings on a single day.

Re: Listen up!!! Gas prices!!!

I'm going to pump gas on April 15th.

Gas stations make their profit off of what you buy inside. Do you ever see just a place to pump gas?

Re: Listen up!!! Gas prices!!!

The rich oil companies will learn from the lack of money on that one day. The will probably be happy with the bonuses they get from everybody buying extra gas on the day before and the day after, but that one day will teach them. Ha what an idea. Anybody who thinks that will work, well we won't go there.

Nothing from a one day boycott will damage the price of gas effectively. The price is based on futures.

Re: Listen up!!! Gas prices!!!

Ha, I filled up 3 cars today, so I cancelled some of you out.

For those that say just don't use gas..I drive over 300 miles a week just to and from work. I also drive a diesel F250 for work everyday hauling over 10k pounds. Not filling up is just not an option.

We, as consumers, have no control over gas prices. If you really want them to drop get this dead-beat President out of office. Obama wants our gas prices equal with Europe ($9-$10 per gallon) so we will buy more efficient vehicles and use less gas. If gas prices go that high nobody can afford a new vehicle so it's all pointless.

In conclusion, if you don't like gas prices now vote Obama out of office. They're only going up from here with him in office. If you like Obama, then you must like $10/gallon gas.
