40¢ per gallon increase isn't gouging, considering how high it could've gone. There're people who cry gouging at the minutest of increases. One even wailed when he was charged 18¢ more for a credit card purchase!

Apparently, one day won't cut it. Maybe a whole week would.
You could boycott it for a month and it wouldn't make a difference.
The oil companies know that the world is completely dependant on oil/gas. They know if we boycott, we'll eventually come back, so there's no incentive to lower prices. They'll just wait it out. And as punishment to the world for boycotting, they'll *raise* prices.
Or how about this? As a big oil company, I would *deny* the world oil. You want to boycott? That's nice. Now we're gonna boycott YOU. The world gets no more oil. None. Now I'm in control. You get oil when I ALLOW it. Then when the world is pleading PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE give us oil back, I'd jack up the price to DOUBLE what it used to be and the world will be more than happy to pay it.

The Cumberland Farms in Stratford has been doing this for years, This past friday gas was $3.64 a gallon for regular at 7am, and when I got out of work and off the exit at 4pm, it was selling for $3.91 a gallon. They absolutely need to be investigated.
I noticed that too! The funny thing is that they are usually the cheapest around. So much so that there are always lines waiting for the pumps!

see where your wrong is, at that point you won't be paying for the milk and bread, but waiting in line for it.
