"Gas is way to high"

Just saw this charming and hastily scribbled sign (and an identical one on the other side of the pole) at the corner of Mellwood and Frankfort Avenues, Louisville.

I'm not sure I would take advice from someone who can't spell "too" in the first place, but I'm not even certain what sort of advice is being offered here. While I certainly agree with the assertion that gas prices are too high, the sign lacks any clear suggestion on how we're supposed to "stand up" about it. Are we supposed to, what, call our congressmen? They know gas prices are high, and they can't do anything about it any more than you and I.

"Do something", the magic marker sign exhorts. But what?
