Thread: Yes you can bring the price of petrol down

    Yes you can bring the price of petrol down

    See what you think and pass it on if you agree with it

    We are hitting 106.9 a litre in some areas now, soon we will be faced with paying 1.10 a ltr. 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 an 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 8 days!!! 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 69p 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. i.e. boycott BP and Esso

    but its the government who have put the prices up,

    this is an old one that turns up every few months.

    Well, it`s got to be worth a try lads, because i personally am getting really sick and tired of the price of fuel.

    The thing is, as we all know, most of the cost incurred at the pump is actually government tax, about 70%, so Gordan brown has got us by the bo****ks and he is squeezing, ouch!!!!

    The governments answer to why we pay so much tax on fuel is that we need to pay money into the NHS, for f**ks sake, we already pay this from national insurance contributions.

    Petrol station owners reckon that they only earn about 3 pence on every litre so can`t do anything to bring the price down.

    I will give it a go for what it`s worth.

    wadashot.

    Before you get excited about how many million people you reach, just check what percentage of the pump price is tax !
    Yes fuel companys make millions, but if you work it out per litre they actually refine and sell you will realise Governments make much more than them without doing bugger all !!!!

    Another way of looking at it is if Esso and BP cant sell the petrol they themselves will be sqeezing the government for the fuel tax to be reduced or else they dont survive themselves so the government will have to do a u turn on fuel taxation or they finsh up with a Northern Rock that sells or cant sell petrol

    Sounds like a possibility but on a practical level, the only fuel station with 30 miles of here is Esso! And we pay upwards of 109.9!

    Useful info here: http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/travel/cheaper-fuel

    There is also a guy trying to get a private fuel discount card off the ground, can't find the link just now but I'll post it when I do.

    BAD IDEA and it wont work
    All you will do is bankrupt the forecourts that are privately owned.
    There are only three garages in my nearest city and that is to serve over 100,000 people.
    There are less forecourts now than in 1912, do you want even less?

    The fuel companies dont own the forecourts, so take out esso and bp and we will be handing a monopoly over to shell, and makes it impossible to buy fuel without driving 20 miles.

    Time would be better spent developing a new fuel that did not allow dispicable Arabs to make billions out of our hardship every year (KIN BUSTARDS)
    This would also keep our money in this country.


    Think before you try and implement this old nut that crops up every year
    You will only shoot yourself and me in the foot
    Stupid Idea thought up by a numbskull

    next you will suggest we all ought to by cars that run on air but how much will that be a litre
    not that i agree with the price of fuel but i agree less with the amount of taxation i hav to edure every time i fill up but buy trying to bankrupt the forecourts/fuelsupplier does not help us in any way at all
    if you came up with your own bio-fuel and gave it me for what it cost to produce you would be my friend for ever
