That's not how Snopes sees it, and I agree - it would only make the

A little thought might help.

If you boycott the major oil brands, they will sell their refined gas to
the minor oil distributors.

just business, you know.

The only ones you hurt will be the franchisees who own the local filling
stations.

And they'll laugh at this one too, the oil all comes from the same few
places, the only way to hurt the oil companies is to consume less of the
product. Don't like the price of gas, don't drive a car, it's that simple.

Re: Avoid Major Oil Companies!

the only way to "exercise our muscle" as consumers,
is to pick carefully what, where, and how much of a product
we buy...If everyone cuts back, say 25% (on gas)...we
could put a real "dent" in the demand for oil....Its about
the only power folks have in a oil based economy.....imho...

We tend to think of America's cars, small trucks and SUVs as being the
lion's share of oil consumption. Although it is the largest single category,
it is less than half the US oil consumption.
(http://www.eia.doe.gov/neic/quickfacts/quickoil.html) A whole lot of oil is
used in heating and commercial transportation - trucks, trains, airplanes,
ships.... And although the US is the largest importer of oil, it isn't the
only importer of oil. Since US gasoline is only about 1/9 of the world
production (http://www.eia.doe.gov/emeu/ipsr/t22.xls), reducing that by 25%
affects world oil demand less than 3% - hardly a bump in the landscape. If
every gasoline vehicle in the US were taken off the road altogether, world
demand would be cut a scant 11%.

What a bunch of idiots. If enough people reduce their consumption of
fuel the cost will come down, but selective purchasing from particular
companies or on particular days is not going to due a darn thing.

Except drive prices up across the board due to increased overhead in
shifting resources around to fuel stations people are buying from.

Of course in the real world only a small percentage of people are stupid
enough to try to attempt such a scheme so there'll be no real effect.
