I heard on the news last night that some well meaning (but misguided) souls have been trying to arrange for yet another gas boycott to protest increasing prices. Unfortunately, gas boycotts don’t work — and for good reason. People don’t actually drive less. Rather, they fill up the day before or the day after, but end up using just as much gas. In other words, overall demand is unchanged, and the boycott has no effect whatsoever.
If you want to make a difference, the answer is simple: drive less.
