gas out
 n.— «A planned national “gas out” protest for Tuesday, May 15, has crawled across the Internet. The prices at the pump tend to rise every year as summer approaches, which is why, just about every year, someone decides to schedule a “gas out,” as they call them. “It sends a message that people have power,” said state Rep. Vernon Smith, D-Gary, who is trying to convince constituents to protest on May 15.» —“Fuel costs spiraling up” by Danielle Braff Post-Tribune (Merrillville, Indiana) May 3, 2007.
