Campaign to Reduce UK Petrol Prices - a rip-off at 80p litre
We are going to hit close to 89p a litre by the summer.
Do you want petrol prices to come down? We need to take some
intelligent, united action.
Philip Hollsworth offered this good idea:
This makes 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
think that the cost of a litre is CHEAP at 77p -80p, we need to take
aggressive action to teach them that BUYERS control the marketplace 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

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
reaches the sixth generation of people, we will have reached over
consumers! If those three million get excited and pass this on to
ten Million 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
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!!! I'll bet you didn't think you and I had that much
potential, did you! Acting together we can make a difference. If this
makes sense to you, please pass this message on. Please hold Out Untill
They Lower Their Prices To 69p a Litre Range. Action::-
It's easy to make this happen. Just forward this email, and buy
