    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
    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 faced with paying 1.50 a litre. Philip Hollsworth offered this
    good idea:


    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.
