!

Its kind of a mass boycott for one day of buying fuel. supposedly it will cost the fuel companies 7 billion. I think it would be funnier if we boycotted all except an american owned one! That would be funny.

I'm all for supporting American companies, but when it comes to oil companies they're all screwing us no matter where they come from.

Come on guys.. do some research.. this stuff doesn't work. As a matter of fact it ends up backfiring. Not fueling on a certain day does very little to change the overall amount of fuel that is bought over a given time period.

For example.. if poeple follow this, and don't fuel tomorrow, most of them probably bought fuel before they needed it today, or will stretch and buy more than usual the day after tomorrow. So... over the three day period, the same amount of fuel was still sold!!!

Well said Aaron! I drained quite a bit on the trip to bowling green over the weekend. I'm going to deliberatly go and drop about 90 bucks filling my tank tomorrow and laughing at the thought of the guys that will run out of gas/fuel because they believe the myth!
