See what you think and pass it on if you agree with it
We are hitting 123.9 a litre in some areas now, soon we will be faced with paying 2.00 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 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 usto 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, weconsumers need to take action. The only way we are going to see theprice 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!!
PLEASE HOLD OUT UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES TO THE 69p <- (i duno if it'll get this low) per LITRE
buy yourpetrol at Shell, Asda,Tesco, Sainsburys, Morrisons Jet etc. i.e. *boycott BP and Esso*
i got this in an e-mail, personaly i dont buy from BP or ESSO anyway as they want the highest prices. i use tesco for my stuff and drive 12 miles to go and get it.
sounds great in principle, but would it really work?
