Oy, try telling that to El Yenta Man, who had too much of my famous vegetarian nachos last night. But seriously, folks, today’s the day of the Big Gas Boycott that’s supposed to lower gas prices. Didn’t ya get the memo?
Sadly, it’s a farce. You can skip the AM/PM or the Chevron today if it makes you feel like you’re doing something to stave off the inevitable $5 gallons we’ll be seeing by next summer, but a one-day boycott is a little like a gnat bite in the fat rolls behind the arm of the oil industry. If you really want to piss off the fat cats, trying not driving for a week. The JSpot has more thoughtful suggestions on sane energy use.
As for me, the point is moot as the Yenta minivan is in the shop with a cracked radiator, which will cost far more to fix than a tank of gas. Cars, gas such tsuris. Think I’ll hop on my bike (it’s got a trailer for the little girl) and go flip off people driving Hummers.
