I found a locally owned gas station who sells non-ethanol gas. His prices do not go up like the big oil companies. His gas yesterday (I fill up on Saturdays) was lower than the gas stations I passed on the way.
Not only am I getting 100 miles more per tank of gas, my vehicle is running soooooooooooo much smoother. I wonder why we are paying the price we are for this corn gas that reduces mpg and ruins engines. How green is it really? Then research tells me also it is more polluting.
It is really amazing this little station is full service and has a garage...like in the old days. You just don't see that anymore here in Florida. The owner actually pumps the gas!
I have boycotted Exxon, mobil and BP for many years. I used shell before I found the non-ethanol only because it seems to be better gas.

Its hard when it comes to vehicles to turn away from the people that provide our fuel. The only ways are the brand new electric cars, which are still not too efficient and not cost effective to the majority of people who can't afford a brand new car. Also, bio-diesel conversions or if you have the opportunity and convenience depending on where you live to ride a bike. People tend to forget about the textile industries which is supported mainly by those oil companies. Soaps, plastics, personal care products, rubber, tar. Its important to make the smart choice when it comes to the everyday purchases we make until the car industry can catch up. Take Action in helping open a new Industry to get us off of Oil Textiles:

I can't join since we have already been boycotting these companies for years...and if the price of gas keeps going up we will have "boycott" them all!

Noted and signed with thanks Cher. I can boycott all but one, unless I can convince the other half to go to the Country Boy's or No Frills (President's Choice/Loblaws)where we can get groceries and gas. I sold my vehicle and we go together, helps a bit on emissions I guess. Unfortunately the civil war in Lybia and perhaps uprisings in Saudia Arabia are causing the prices to go through the roof....Horse anyone? Guess not clean up would be awful!!!lol

Right on! To heck with them all! They are traitors! So are the auto companies! These corporations need badly to be decartelized. Certainly using Valero, Thrifty and other small oil companies will help a tiny fraction. Driving less will help. Buying Flex Fuel Vehicles will help. Also CNG cars if you can find them, dedicated or bi-fuel CNG will take you out of the petrol consumption if you live near CNG pumps open 24 hours to the public via credit card purchase, which many urban areas have. Turning over a new Leaf will help a lot. Burns me up that these Japo subcompacts were getting something like 35 city and 54 highway miles per gallon back in 1982-3, according to newspaper advertisements, then came OBD and high mileage vanished in favor of fault codes. and according to Bob Brandt's book on how to convert a car to electric vehicle, the Japos had perfected good mileage per charge in some of their models back in the 80s or so.

I avoid some of these stations when I can, anyway. But actually, high oil prices are not a bad thing. They might finally force more Americans to conserve fuel, and force the U.S to ditch gas-guzzling cars and make more, better and cheaper hybrids and electric cars, and step up solar paneling of buildings and the placement of wind power installations. The U.S. is far behind many other industrialized nations in getting off of petroleum dependence because of the tremendous political power of oil companies here.

Sighed and shared on Facebook, thanks, Cher. I never buy gas from these guys anyway...at least not that I know of.... I live where I have many choices and there are local/independent stations, I've also been walking a lot more for some time! However, one has to do a little research. When I decided to boycott BP I found out they also own Arco, Valero and another place I had been using, just because the sign says Cheapo Supreme doesn't mean Exxon or one of the other major companies doesn't own it, they're just going after a different demographic. Like the rest of you I will do the best I can, with this and with writing my reps urging them to vote with programs that get us the heck off oil all together!

I've been boycotting all three of these companies for a long time, and Shell even longer. When we had high performance cars we had to use the premium gas, but we finally got rid of them. And Sir Walk, how long? Forever. We can't know what oil company sold the petroleum products to make plastics and so many things we buy, but this is a boycott of gasoline and oil from those companies; that's all, and it's a good idea while there is still some competition left in the field.

Don't forget to boycott BP also!

BUY CITGO GAS!
100% Venezuelan
Citgo donates more FREE heating oil to the elderly and poor in the United States than our own government does!
Venezuela paid off their debt to the IMF and forced them to leave the country. That deserves a reward!

This really works - I have seen it myself
There is a new movement starting.
Stanley Meyers invented a car that runs on water, actually an 'on demand' Hydrogen generator. There are videos available on YouTube.
Mr. Meyers was murdered, his car and entire estate was seized by the government. Many small communities are being developed to recreate his work. I have seen this process work, it is impressive. Check it out, share info with your neighbors. Freedom from the oil companies is closer than you think. Watch the videos & don't let anyone tell you this is a fake.

Sorry but the market does not work that way. The gas stations are for the most part locally owned. The major oil companies buy and sell on the world oil market. Now if you could reduce the overall demand for oil by quickly reducing consumption - which is the effect that the price spike will eventually have - then you could cause a price drop at all gas stations in a month or so. Likewise if you could increase supply over the next few years you would see the same thing.
So you should reduce consumption if possible. I know we cancelled a vacation this weekend to avoid the gas price and many are doing so.
You should buy gas where it is cheapest no matter the name on the sign.
We should be drilling for more oil here in the US because we have large reserves. There are no realistic alternatives on the horizon - yet - so don't pretend there is. I wish there was, but you are lying to yourself if you think so.

Where does the US import its oil from? You may find this surprising.
Canada is BY FAR the US biggest oil supplier at over 2.7 million barrels per day. Next is Mexico where we get 1.4 million bpd followed by Saudi Arabia and Nigeria at (1 million bpd each), and Venezuela at 900 thousand bpd. These 5 countries make up 75% of all US petroleum imports.
As I said before oil is a global commodity. Which gas station you decide to buy your gas from has none, zero, impact on the worldwide price of oil and the corresponding price of gasoline. It is only the TOTAL amount of demand vs. supply.
