    Why?

    Because of the following:

    1.) No lines at the pump because most morons are protesting.

    2.) Not buying gas on 5/15 only means you will need gas later on 5/16, 5/17, or 5/18 . . . and so on & so fouth.

    3.) If you don't buy gas it means that somebody else will. Think about it - you dont buy gas, but instead call a taxi to take you somewhere or take a bus - >>>> you have still indirectly caused the same amount of gas to be used up. If you dont buy gas, taxi drivers and bus companies will.

    And they promptly made 42.5 billion in the few months afterwards. Do you really think stunts like these really scare big oil? Guys who run oil companies can practically bathe in their own money.

    this statement makes no sense to me
    demand is only altered one day, it decreases one day, and increases the day before and the day after

    well, i don't think gas companies are worried about profits. they've made enough already. i'm sure they can give gas away for the next few years and still be making money.

    So you're telling me that people didn't drive for 2 billion dollars worth of gas because they bought gas on a different day?

    It's like I said before.

    Take one big fat fucker and tell him in order to lose weight he has to stop eating for 1 day. If he eats nothing for one day, he will show his fat body whos in charge and some how it will cause him to lose weight even months to come.......

    Unfortunately, I filled up both vehicles two days ago. So I am unable to participate in the screwing up of this world altering event.

    ah well.

    ... No.... Not really. Its 708 million dollars short. Does this logic irritate the hell out of everyone here or am I just freaking out? They assume that everyone who uses the internet has a car. And said car will be bone dry, needing a full tank of gas on May 15th. I love the real world number crunching they've done.

    if you don't drive a car or motorcycle you could starve your horse today or ride around with the seat off your bicycle.
