Old Gas PumpImage via WikipediaFacebook has done some pretty amazing things. Anything from reuniting lost loves and old friends to creating a revolution in oppressed countries. I want to see if we can organize an event to reach as many people as possible to have a day designated to boycott all gas stations across the planet.

I know this has been tried before, but not since Facebook has become the phenomenon that it has. So, send this event to everyone on your friends list, and let's see if we can start our own revolution, by letting these oil companies know we aren't going to stand for these prices!

Simply avoid all gas stations on March 31, 2011. And if you can go one step further, don't even drive that day. Why not let Facebook help us spread the word? However, don't forget your local mom and pop shop. Go IN and buy something that day. Make a point of it!

We're mad as hell, and are tired of watching the big oil companies laugh all the way to the bank while we all suffer. Let's do this!

Side note:
And since there seems to be so much confusion about what we are trying to do here, let me clarify now. This is NOT about thinking we are going to send gas prices plummeting downward because of this one day. This is about taking a stand, together, against greedy people whose commodity happens to affect ALL OTHER commodity's prices. What other commodity does that? Let's be the nation of innovators that we are and come up with something better!

And if you can, people that belong to organized groups, be it churches, bikers, or even a group of your friends, go and rally at one of your local government offices that day. Let your officials know enough is enough!

And while you are at it... Reduce, reuse, and recycle. :)

Also, I would like to let you know, that every day, someone gets on here and impersonates me and says lots of vile things to people, it's not me, and I apologize for their behavior. You just have to ignore it. They have been turned in. Pathetic.
