As long as you still are using gas (whether or not you stock up and use it from cans over the 10 days or just drive a little bit less), the gas companies will still win.

The best way to control gas prices is to remove it as a commodity from Wall Street. It is the speculators who drive up the price of gas more than anything - sometimes as much as 40-50%!

Try buying only what you need, make arrangements to visits with family after Christmas or after the New Year.

"Don't buy gas for 10 days. Because this will help lower the gas price. "

And why would you think that plan would work?
