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.

That is the idea. You and all the boycotter don't buy from a selected station. They have to lower their price or go out of business. We can control the price of gas not the stations,

Unfortunately, you can't get enough people to join to make a gas boycott effective.

Yes, if you are buying fuel from another station. No, if you are taking public transit, riding bicycles, or walking instead of driving.

Gas boycotts are not a waste of time if you can get enough people to notice at a higher level than just the local level.
