    Reduce gas prices: boycott Exxon Mobil (and BP, too) for the rest of the year. Get all friends and family to do the same. When EM sales drop, they’ll drop prices and others will be forced to follow. ExMob made record profits the last few years while we pay through the nose! Let’s have our own version of Egyptian mass demand for freedom — from high gas prices. Tweet. Post. Text. Email. Get everyone to agree!
