I advocate a boycott against Exxon, BP and Chevron gas stations. Use independent stations instead. Have people with placards on the public sidewalks near the gas stations to remind them of the BP oil spill in the Gulf, the Exxon oil spill in Alaska, and the Chevron explosion in Richmond, CA. This would mostly be symbolic, like divesting, but would remind the public that we want to get away from dirty fossil fuels. U.S. Transportation fuel consumption accounts for over 70 percent of total U.S. oil consumption, and more than 65 percent of that amount is for personal vehicles. I think if we boycotted gas stations of Chevron, BP and Exxon, it would send a big message that "we the people" control where we spend our money. Why is this not a good idea?
I think one of the best option we masses of people have against big corporations is a boycott.
Do you like this suggestion?
