The pointlessness of No Gas Day

It’s silly season again... that time when people boycott gas stations for a day and then pat themselves on the back thinking they’ve actually "made a statement." Of course, that statement is "Meaningless gestures are much easier than actually doing something."

(If you need a reminded on why such days is useless, read my earlier essay on the topic)

If you'd rather eschew empty symbolism, check out this piece from The Christian Science Monitor. It offers 10 suggestions on how to lower gas consumption. They may be small and *gasp* require effort, but they actually make a difference.
