We are all frustrated over the gas prices and it's very unforunate that her stand got her in some big time trouble.

What can we do to let these gas companiies know that we are hating the prices? Or maybe we should plan a uniform day when no one buys gas.

I've seen those emails that go around the internet about days you shouldn't buy gas, but do they ever work???

i wonder if she needs to be evaulated before release-- thats a crazy thing to do
