Gas prices are always quick to rise, but go down very slowly if at all.

With all the cancelled flights, that should have reduced the demand for jet fuel!

They should force speculators to hold stock, 48 hours after being purchased. It would slow down the flipping by day traders.

Only way we will get relief is to destroy the futures market. That is what drives prices up up up up!

Is this along the same lines as a fuel boycott where folks don't buy fuel for a day or two resuls in price drop?
