Fuel Free Friday

It is estimated that the United States consumes 19.6 million barrels per day, of oil, which is more than 25% of the world’s total oil supply.

Per capita Americans use approximately 4.51 litres of oil. In 2005, Americans consumed approximately 637 gallons each (check out Wyoming’s use – huge compared to other States).

Here’s an idea, let’s start Fuel Free Friday. FFF will be the second Friday of each month. On FFF we will NOT buy petrol or any other oil products. We will all park our cars and take public transportation, ride a bicycle, walk, anything but don’t buy any petrol.

If a few million people do this each month, we can curb our fuel consumption, greenhouse gas emmissions, and hit the big oil companies hard in their purses. What do you say? Are you in?
