And this would lower gas prices how exactly?

Need a little better plan than a wide-eyed Beavis clenching his fists, screeching "Break it! Break it!"

Nothing we do is going to lower gas prices. However, sitting idly by and not getting angry over it seems insane to me. But history is an indication of the power of the people. If a thousand or so gas stations were burned to the ground on the same day, then that sends a pretty strong message to congress, the president, whoever. The power of the people rules over all.
