COme on guys and gals. They have us by the short hairs. You all need gas. You will never get ALL of the public together to do it. Aint gonna happen---EVER. You can help by voting out our current communist, entitlement dictator and all those who stick it to us for their own gain. We need to tell the other countries that we wont pay their prices. We need to develop and use or own iol, and we have a LOT of it. I could go on nad on but you all know the score. This thread is a waste of good server space for the site!

Just having a place to vent may be helpful for some. Don't use it if you don't want to.

This whole category is a waste as far as I'm concerned.

The only way to stick it to BIG OIL is to change our usage patterns, not buying patterns.

As Heavy Duty noted, a few years back there was a lot of activity from people with selective boycott ideas. No gas on (insert day of the week here), no gas from Exxon or Shell or someone else, only buy two gallons at a time. And many permutations of the above basic ideas to "send a message to BIG OIL". I'd like to think we have educated a lot of people, but more likely it is just dissipation of anger with time.

A couple of years ago this topic was active with some very entertaining boycott topics.

WOW! I like this topic! Great opening salvo Cedonulli! You're going to be a force to reckon with on this site someday! Three posts and you're famous!

I agree. This entire thread is insane. Boycotts of gas stations will never work until there is a viable source of energy that we can use instead of gas. Until then, suck it up, stick with GasBuddy, and save where you can.

Boycotts don't work. Check with gas buddy for the best prices. Take stay cations. There must be places to go in your town. If you need to take long trips consider renting a fuel efficient vehicle.

Don't hold your breath on rookie boycott meat posting prices. That would actually take, you know, effort. And he/she is here for free stuff, not to do work. It is the entitlement mentality - demand someone else pay your bills, demand someone else supply gasoline at the prices you dictate. It does get old after a while.

Good for you. Now, are you going to post any gas prices? I'm sure your fellow Oregonians would appreciate it.
