How do we stop petrol prices going up before holidays?

I am wondering how we can stop petrol prices going up before holidays. I read that if we all stopped buying fuel on one day it would seriously send a message to the fuel companies. That may not work, but surely we could do something?

I doubt that much can be done. Some months ago there was a holiday in one State one week and their fuel prices went up in that state only but the following week, several other states had a holiday. Guess what, the states where there was a holiday had a price increase and the state that had the holiday the week before, the prices stayed down. I try to get fuel on a Tuesday or Wednesday because they say those are the days when the prices are lowest.
