    Just got the text on my cell phone last night. I have Hybrid, but it still hurts when I go to the pump.

    So you don't buy gas tomorrow... I'd better go full up tonight so I don't buy it tomorrow. I would hate to be a part of the problem. [​IMG]

    Yeah well.. that's all nice and pretty but I buy gas on Fridays because it's the only time I'm near the station with the cheapest gas and I'm about out. Plus, it really doesn't make a bit of difference when you buy the gas, eventually you're going to have to get it.

    The only way to stick it to them is not to drive at all.

    Oh wait then I'd get fired for not showing up to work. Then there would be no money coming in. Then if no money coming in, that means I'm not spending money, then I'll be contributing the the economic downfall.... [​IMG]

    Oh heck, I guess I just go feed my chickens and be quite. [​IMG]

    How about just stop buying so much plastic, especially anything unnessecarily packaged in plastic. Last I checked plastic is a petroleum product. Remember the only way any of us truly vote anymore is with our $'s.

    I won't get gas tomorrow, BUT I believe it's going to take a week to open some eyes in the oil industry. They've made so much money in revenues, that one day isn't going to break the bank, if you know what I mean. Just my opinion! [​IMG]
