It wouldn't really "put a dent in the Middle Eastern oil industry" that much. The US gets almost half of its oil domestically, and then even half of its imports come from places in the western hemisphere. In fact, only 16% of the oil that the US consumes comes from Middle Eastern countries. So we`d really be sticking it to ourselves, Canada and Mexico, if this even worked (which it wouldn`t). Also, the previous "gas out" did not work and the price of gas did not drop 30 cents over night.

The event that is being sent through all of my friends right now is to not buy Gas on April 15th, so I don't think this is going to make the big impact they want to see if there are different groups for different days. And I agree with whyme, I don`t think it would work if its only one day.
