I actually sold my car and now walk or catch a bus everywhere - it's a lot easier to get used to than I thought it would be.
Although, I still need to buy food. I still use a computer, television, heating etc etc. All of those things either came off the back of a truck or use oil for their production, so it's a bit difficult to banish oil completely.

I would enjoy to stick it to the man in such a way as boycotting gas for one day. However, in my opinion I find it extremely unrealistic for everyone to not buy gas on a specific day. Besides it's a short term reaction to a long term problem.
Besides, the oil companies are filthy rich. One day will mean little to a guy/gal that has a huge yacht with a helicopter pad and scantily clad hard bodies running about.
In my opinion frugality, planning a trip, biking/walking when possible, support of sustainable energy, conserving, recycling, and so forth and so on is far more powerful.
