I absolutely agree. My law firm has handled some cases involving fuel distribution and one day or even a week is not going to mean anything for a variety of reasons. A much better solution is to collectively select a specific brand (such as Exxon or Mobil or Pilot or whoever) and everyone absolutely avoid them for a predefined and extended period of time. An extended economic impact on one vendor is much more effective that a silly protest day.
I filled up in Nashville today at 3.82 by the way at a small dealer I have never used before. I normally fuel at Pilot but I can avoid it if I have to.
