Tifton- Hayward Fowler owns and operates the Fun Channel America Network. He says viewers tired of the rising price of gas inspired him to take action.

Fowler wants all Georgians not to purchase any gas on September 9th, 10th, or 11th. He says he chose the dates to coincide with the anniversary of the terrorist attacks.

"We're not doing this because we're angry with the convenience stores. We're doing this because we want to send a message to the oil companies. We know that the retailers are caught in this trap too," says Fowler.

Fowler says he hopes a boycott will produce an abundance of gas and force big companies to drop their prices.
