Just remeber it is a supply and demand operation.  The guys at the local station are just part of the supply side and you as a buyer are part of the demand side.  Exon is mostly just a distribution operation at this time here since they sold their last refinery in Texas if I am remebering correctly.  So again if you can cut back on your unecessary trips you will be doing your part to reduce the demand and therefore in the long run reducing the price.

I found a way to get my gas free, so I don't worry about it.

i'd be all for the public transportation thing if i lived in the city. i'd have to drive at least 15 minutes to the nearest bus stop. if i lived in a bigger city where public transportation was used more, it would work, but i'm a college student and it could take me over an hour to get to class when it normally takes 20 minutes. i guess it just depends on where you live.

i dont know if anyone heard of this before but it something call gas 2 water. where u use gas and water to run your vehicle. It sounds simple but it a little more detailed than that. Basically, You  get distilled water with a measure amount of baking soda (i forget the mixture) and u stick a positive and negative charge in the bottle. This breaks down the molecules into to hydrogen and oxygen which gets shot down the intake of your car and burn. Supposly it makes your injectors (things that shoot fuel into your engine) dispense less fuel thus making a tank of gas lass longer since your using less gas.

I found this on a site years ago and thought about doing it but cant right not due to not having a test car. So dont quote me on anything as i am not sure if that how it goes correctly but that the concept that i found some guy did online and got close to 45mpg in a Toyota Corolla.

If everyone got together and did not by gas for a week or two and stayed home and then gas prices would go down but it would probably take longer than two weeks.

 :wave: All I know is if the prices keep going up, more and more people will be staying home, less vacations, trips for food , back to the olded days when people made one trip to town, and if you forgot something , see you next trip.  Maybe a good idea if you think about it

How do you get your gas free? Or do you mean that the money you spend for gas is earned online and that's free?

Those don't buy gas today campaigns really don't do much at all.  You would have to force everyone not to buy gas to make a difference, and that's just not viable.

I am open to any suggestions in getting the price down.  The supplier to our area has a monopoly on the fuel prices.  It is $3.959 right now.  Seems like when it goes up, it jumps 20 - 40 cents per gallon but when it comes down, it only comes down 3 - 5 cents at a time.
Have a wonderful day!

That's pretty well out of our hands as "ordinary" citizens. The politicians are the ones we elected to handle such things for us.
