A buddy said he heard this on the radio. Pick a big oil Co. Say ,like EXXON cause they are still gouging pretty heavily to cover the good Captains "whiskey bump" in Alaska and still pay the stock holders. Everyone boycotts Exxon for 1 month! Exxon has an immediate glut.Price comes down to sell it and the rest of them follows so they can compete. Remember the price wars of yesteryear? Does this sound like a good idea to you?

Sometimes I feel ALL prices are to high!

this is always talked about but never done. i think it could work, but we would never get teh cooperation of people to do it. or EXXON would just absorb the loss for a month and go on unphased.

If you want to make big bucks in America today create a shortage, or at least claim there is one. Why spend capital on R&D to make a profit when all you have to do is scream shortage. If there was a shortage as they claim there is, you would not be able to buy gas at any price. How many people have you seen drive away from the pumps because there was no gas, none, because there is no shortage.
