Force gas companies to their knees

I have read many possible solutions for force the gas prices down and no one ever takes them seriously enough to do what has been asked of them.

OK, so here is my thought. Say we take two days out of the week to fill up our tanks at our local gas stations – let’s make it Tuesday and Saturday – and the rest of the week we do not fill up. This will give the gas companies five days of no sales of fuel and I believe this will really get their attention as they will lose money in a big way.

If everyone would pass on this idea we can make it work. There are of course people who have to use more fuel than others but that is still less than the populous using fuel.

I also suggest we use gas stations that are not run by the big oil companies, such as Exxon, Chevron and Shell, and use the little guys only if possible.

We can do this. I really wished we could get this idea on TV and radio to everyone so they all know it can work. The oil companies have us at their mercy and all we can do is watch and pay while they get rich off this monopoly they have. Fight back!
