DON'T DRIVE

Dear Source,
Indeed we should do something about the rising price of gasoline, but keeping away from the gas station for three days will not work. People will buy more before and after.
Remember when we boycotted Pueblo the sales rose the next week!
In my opinion we should not use our car for three days. We can use car-pools busses, combine errands with others, skip going just to the post office. It will be a pinch in our habits, but not in our wallets.
We could do it in a laps of time in two or three weeks (for convenience). But think of the amount of gas for all cars not running for three days, that would really be noticed at the pump station. And the traffic…how nice!
Please ,think about it. Try to organize. yourself. You may. like it and make a habit of it.
