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.
