Plan for lowering gas prices

Boycotting gas does not work. Everyone needs gasoline to live, so let's not boycott gasoline. Get as much gasoline as you need.

Let's boycott the gasoline station commodities, such as milk, beer, cigarettes, bottled water, soda, coffee, candy, beef jerky, hot dogs, sandwiches and newspapers. All these commodities can be bought at alternative sites such as Starbucks, liquor stores, supermarkets and fast food places.

I know that most of these gasoline stations are privately owned, and they need the profits from their commodities to stay in business. The actual profit from gasoline alone is very small.

Since the government is not doing anything to lower gasoline prices, let's put the pressure on the gasoline station owners, and they will in turn put direct pressure on the major gasoline suppliers.

The major gasoline suppliers will then put pressure on the world producers of gasoline in foreign countries. If the local gasoline stations cannot stay open due to lack of business in selling their commodities, then there will be no one to sell the gasoline for the world producers. Consequently, they will have to lower gasoline prices or it will just sit idle in their storage tanks in Saudi Arabia, et al.
