We should boycott gas stations that charge more for credit cards. Gas companies should be alarmed at this as well. They push their cards and give discounts then greedy gas stations nullify it by adding a dime a gallon for credit.

A real one, no.
A gas station boycott, yes. You can't get enough people to participate.

Yep, why refuse to buy when eventually you will be forced to anyway? Now if I could use "reliable" (ha ha) public transportation, it may work but in little towns, no sense if only one or two sources for fuel.

Yes Chiefaz! Life is too short. You gotta enjoy doing something good, like traveling and discovering new places, play new games, watch a movie, etc.

If all our Gas Buddy friends would do this, boycotts will work. This is that we should all get our gas at the lowest posting in your area. If it means going a little out of your way and negating the savings you would have, it will still deny the business of the higher priced stations & if they are not selling gas at those higher prices they will be forced to lower them. Makes sense to me. How about you!

Boycotting is not a waste of time. It worked for African Americans in the 60s. The bus companies lost money so now African Americans can sit anywhere on the bus.

If there is a really really bad unfair situation happening at a gas station, report it. I just can't imagine what one can be.

You would have to do it for a few weeks or months but then the ones who would lose out are the employee.
