Subject: Petrol Prices Must Read.
The price of oil is as low as it has been for a while,
But the oil companies have simply jacked their prices up and the
government will not do anything as they rake in extra VAT for every
See what you think and pass it on if you agree with it
We are hitting 114.9 a litre in some areas now, soon we
will be faced with paying 1.50 a litre. Philip Hollsworth offered this
This makes MUCH MORE SENSE than the 'don't buy petrol on
a certain day campaign that was going around last April or May! The
oil companies just laughed at that because they knew we wouldn't
continue to hurt ourselves by refusing to buy petrol. It was more of an
inconvenience to us than it was a problem for them. BUT, whoever thought
of this idea, has come up with a plan that can really work.
Please read it and join in!
Now that the oil companies and the OPEC nations have
conditioned us to think that the cost of a litre is CHEAP, we need to
take aggressive action to teach them that BUYERS control the market
place not sellers. With the price of petrol going up more each day, we
consumers need to take action. The only way we are going to see the
price of petrol come down is if we hit someone in the pocket by not
purchasing their Petrol! And we can do that WITHOUT hurting ourselves.
Here's the idea:
For the rest of this year DON'T PURCHASE ANY petrol FROM
the two biggest oil companies (which now are one), ESSO and BP.
If they are not selling any petrol, they will be
inclined to reduce their prices. If they reduce their prices, the other
companies will have to follow suit. But to have an impact we need to
reach literally millions of Esso and BP petrol buyers. It's really
simple to do!!
Now, don't wimp out at this point... keep reading and
I'll explain how simple it is to reach millions of people!!
I am sending this note to a lot of people. If each of
you send it to at least ten more (30 x 10 = 300)... and those 300 send
it to at least ten more (300 x 10 = 3,000) ... and so on, by the time
the message reaches the sixth generation of people, we will have reached
over THREE MILLION consumers! If those three million get excited and
pass this on to ten friends each, then 30 million people will have been contacted! If it
goes one level further, you guessed it... ...
THREE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE!!!
Again, all You have to do is send this to 10 people.
That's all.(and not buy at ESSO/BP) How long would all that take? If
each of us sends this email out to ten more people within one day of
receipt, all 300 MILLION people could conceivably be contacted
within the next 8days!!! Acting together we can make a difference . If
this makes sense to you, please pass this message on.
PLEASE HOLD OUT UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES TO THE 90p a LITRE RANGE
It's easy to make this happen. Just forward this email, and BUY your petrol at Shell,
Asda,Tesco, Sainsburys, Morrisons Jet etc.
BOYCOTT ESSO and BP.
