"This website, by default, creates the most effective and cost-effective method of boycott. Drivers will purchase fuel where it is offered at the lowest available price. The only cost-effective way to expand the boycott is to share information provided on this website."

Yeah too bad prices are largely the same from one station to the next in the average town.

This site has only served to confirm where I don't want to get gas, but I've always known them to be rather high.

I'm sure it'll help me when I go on trips though, as I can avoid the easy-access stations that jack up their prices just because they can hit out of towners.

People scramble to get gas right before the boycott and then resume after the boycott. Sales spike at those times and compensate for the low sales days in between. It doesn't hurt Big Oil at all so it's not even remotely effective.

You don't boycott gas. You boycott a gas company. Buy all the gas you want, just not from the boycotted company. Easily done and very effective
if you can get the people together. Can be done city by city or state by state.

yes because if you boycott a particular gas company they will just sell their gas to another company.

No. Success depends on how you apply it. You don't boycott gas, you boycott a gas company!
