“Gas out”? Well!

Wading and even swimming in the social internetworking pool can be a little tedious with the variety of re-posting that occurs. Perhaps a smaller circle of friends would make it somewhat less repetitive. Lately, all the posts have been about not buying gas on a single -day-. That stuff and nonsense made me snap… Maybe I’m too logical for my own good. May I say something? Oh, wait… I live here. I -will- say something!

Do you really want to do something about those high gas prices? Then don’t do anything involving gasoline products! That’s right! Don’t drive a car, don’t use a gas lawn mower, don’t ride a gas-using bus, and don’t, whatever you do, take an airplane. And check on how your electricity is created. You may have to walk or bike a lot.

Do this for one full, uninterrupted month, and you -will- affect the oil companies’ bottom lines, especially if you can get a few (thousand) friends to join you in this noble cause. A day is not enough; these guys don’t do their accounting by the day, but by the month and by the quarter, so that is your target. Don’t stock up ahead of time or catch up later because then all your deprivation will be for nought.

If you are serious about affecting the big oil companies, then you have to make a big commitment.

I dare you.
