Boycott one oil company indefinitely

Hi everyone, this may not be the forum, but I have to vent. I read in several postings about a gas boycott scheduled for April 7th through the 9th. In my opinion, that's not going to work too well. Instead we should boycott one company (say Chevron) indefinitely, then that may shift competition. Hopefully the price may drop. The boycott could last months and we could fill up our vehicles at another station. If this seems like a worthwhile idea, spread the word. It would be interesting to see how the giant oil mongrel would react.

Re: Boycott one oil company indefinitely

I am now at the point in my life that I agree with you. A concern is the $ now .. but way after health, family, and friends here and in chat. I see many people who are fortunate to have enough $ to do some of the fun thngs in life because of the home heating oil prices and costs to drive to work. I really am PO'ed (again) at the cartel for forgetting what the coalition did for them a few years ago. Not that they should give away their oil to us and the Brits/French/etc. Good luck~

I think that boycotting only one company will hurt the employees of that company and I think that they're entitled to eat just like us. If it were possible to boycott one station one week and then another the next. Or just reduce the amount of gas that we use. Like I should talk my truck gets 8-9 mpg's. I guess I'll have to ride my motorcycle instead.

Yeah, I think the only way to get their attention is to cut consumption. I'm going to fire up the motorcycle, if it ever stops raining in Southern California.
