One way to bring gas prices in line with reality is to stop buying anything but gas from the oil companies. No more cigarettes, papers, pop, sandwiches, candy, coffee, lottery tickets etc., etc. The industry has spent millions over the last dozen years creating sales other than gas with huge market-ups. This cash flow is most important to their operations and if sales were reduced even slightly we would see more competition within the industry. Any major reduction in confectionary sales would be disastrous for them. Stop buying this stuff from them, save some money as it’s always cheaper at grocery stores, and join the fight against high gas prices.

Which is what helps them remain competitive on their fuel prices. What we have here is yet another Econ 101 dropout.

Dude, it is always better to remain silent and just let people think you are a fool.

Gasonly12: your plan to lower gas prices is to stop buying cigarettes, papers, pop, sandwiches, candy, coffee, lottery and tickets? Seriously?
