Idiotic gas station protests

Boycotting gas stations for one day, while still driving the same amount and consuming the same amount of gas, is not going to make a damn bit of difference. The oil companies don't care what day you buy your gas. They care how much you consume overall.

If you really want to do something about the high price of gasoline, change your consumption habits. Carpool, ride a bike, take the bus, stay in more often, etc. No, your individual actions won't have a meaningful impact on the worldwide market for petroleum, but at least you'll be saving some money.
