I haven't heard of a gas strike yet (except here at ATS) but I think it's a great idea. What would be even better if everyone could NOT buy gas for one whole week!! Do you think a move like that might freak out those who choose to screw us? Officials from the gas companies keep repeating that there is no gouging...but I want someone to tell me why the gas in my town in Washington (near Seattle) is $3.81 and the gas in another state is $3.59? My cousin in California says she's paying $4.00 a gallon. That isn't gouging...all those different prices for the same gas? Also, heard on the news this A.M. that the prediction is for gas to DOUBLE before summer!! What do you all think of them apples?
