    Petrol Cost and how we might be able to stop it

    Well I had this email sent to me and I have to say I think this could work.

    The price of oil is as low as it has been for a while, the oilcompanies have simply jacked their prices up and the government will not do anything as they rake in extra VAT for every increase.
    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 facedwith paying 1.50 a ltr. Philip Hollsworth offered this good idea:

    This makes MUCH MORE SENSE than the 'don't buy petrol on a certainday campaign that was going around last April or May! The oil companiesjust laughed at that because they knew we wouldn't continue to hurt ourselves by refusing to buy petrol. It was more of an inconvenience tous 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 tothink that the cost of a litre is CHEAP, we need to take aggressiveaction to teach them that BUYERS control the market place not sellers.


    With the price of petrol going up more each day, we consumers need totake action. The only way we are going to see the price of petrol comedown 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 twobiggest oil companies (which now are one), ESSO and BP.


    If they are not selling any petrol, they will be inclined to reducetheir prices. If they reduce their prices, the other companies willhave to follow suit. But to have an impact we need to reach literallymillions 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 toat least ten more (30 x 10 = 300)... and those 300 send it to at leastten more (300 x 10 = 3,000) ... and so on, by the time the messagereaches the sixth generation of people, we will have reached overTHREE MILLION consumers! If those three million get excited and passthis on to ten friends each, then 30 million people will have beencontacted! 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.(andnot buy at ESSO/BP) How long would all that take? If each of us sendsthis email out to ten more people within one day of receipt,all 300 MILLION people could conceivably be contacted within the next8days!!! Acting together we can make a difference . If this makes senseto you, please pass this message on.









    PLEASE HOLD OUT UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES TO THE 90p a LITRE.


    It's easy to make this happen. Just forward this email, and buy your petrol at Shell, Asda, Tesco, Sainsburys, Morrisons Jet etc. i.e..Boycott BP and ESSO.

    i had a very similar email to this about a year ago

    Great idea although it didn't work then and I doubt you'd generate enough interest to get it to work now

    I think we should start blowing up petrol stations

    That would get their attention

    This was posted a couple of weeks ago, and won't work. There's nothing we can do. Instead of trying to hurt the petrol companies, we should be protesting about the massive taxes on petrol. This country's ruined anyway so we just have to live with it.
