The Miracle Cure to Lowering Gas Prices!!

I hadn't taken the time to read the Urban Legends Reference page in a while, but I was very pleased to come across one debunking of an e-mail that's commonly sent about one method by which people can unite to lower gas prices.

There are two variations; Either everyone chooses to not buy gasoline on any given day, or people boycott a specific company.

They have one thing in common. Neither would work, and this page explains why.

I'm not knowledgeable enough to know whether the same rules apply in exactly the same ways in Canada. But I think the conclusion at the end of the page is a logical one. Buy less gas. How much simpler could it be?

No doubt there are some trips that one can't make without a vehicle. But having known people to drive three or four blocks to reach a convenience store leads me to think that a great many drivers out there could stand to trim many such small trips from their total consumption.
