    Default fuel boycot, please read

    PETROL REVOLT

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

    We are hitting £1.00 a litre in some areas.

    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 are now 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) If each of us sends this email within one day of receipt, 300 MILLION people could conceivably be contacted within the next 8days!!!

    That's s how much potential we have! 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. Iet’s Boycott BP and Esso.

    Good luck with breaking one of the biggest legalised cartels in history.

    Petrols v Diesels: can't we just put it to bed, its starting to get boring.

    Not this old chesnut again. Pops up everytime there's a rise in fuel prices. If you recieve this by email, be very wary about sending it on. It has been known in the past (along with the other fuel boycott emails) to come with a worm attached, indeed my mother fell victim to a worm from this 18 months ago.

    Worm or not it is a passive Virus designed to clog the e-mail systems.

    All a load of hairy old b******s to be honest. It really won't make any differerence. The prices are advised to the filling stations by the Petrol Retailers Association! It is them you should lobby...

    Oh, Petrol is a bi-product of the distillation process by the way, so does not actually have a specific cost for the maufacturers. Pure profit after the additives / delivery etc.

    Nice little earner.
