    Default fuel prices

    We had this email in at work, thought i would post it here to see what you guys think

    We are hitting £ 106.9 a litre in some areas now, soon we
    will be faced with paying £1 .10 a ltr.

    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 i t 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 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

    All fuel comes from the same place. It doesn't matter were you buy it it's still getting taxed to the hilt. We need to Axe the goverment not the fuel company's.
    It's not going to ever get any cheaper.

    I think hitting the forecourts will still make a difference as they make profits from
    a lot of products aside from petrol and would show that finally we could do something as a collective. It would be interesting to see what happened.

    Fuel's are running out. Costing more and more money to extract from the ground. Here in america it's $3 a gallon now. 4 years ago it was $1. Even starting a war to get all the fuel from Iraq has not done a thing to lower prices.

    It's just costing more and more to get it.
    I agree we are getting hammerd on the tax from the british goverment.
    Maybe a good old strike would help. But for how long. The last time we did it it never stayed at the set amount for long. We are to soft in Britain to do anything major about this sort of thing.

    Spot on!

    We should atleast be expecting fuel prices to rise with inflation! What you need to remember is the oil companies are massive conglomerates! There all producing each others oil! Don't think BP or ESSO are anyworse than the others!
    The only way to really hit anyone company is to simply not buy any fuel for a prolonged period, hit everyone! Litterally grind the country to a halt! Do we want to do this...no think i'll pay my110p litre thanks!
    Please also bear inmind that BP /ESSO etc are actually Petro Chemical Companies, They crack the oil down to produce a huge number of products we use every day.
    I work in the north sea and for my asset it costs approxametly $35 to produce one barrell of oil (Based on 10,000 barrells/day). Thats the cost of getting out of the resevoir, it then needs to be transported and refined- More cost $$. Then delivered to your local petrol station and sold yet more cost$$.
    The price of fuel is only going in one direction, if you that moved by it buy yourself a bike! You here alot of people complaining about fuel costs but there unwilling to do anything about it than blame others!

    I'm sure some will disagree with my views but thats just how i see it!

    Dennis a mate of mine work's off Aberdeen and he says it's just taking longer to get the oil and they are having to put more into getting it. IE : pumping stuff down to the Well's to force it out.
    He thinks his rig will be shutting down soon as it's not making money.
    Like a lot of other's.
    I think i need fuel to run my car then i just have to pay.
    It's like smoking and drinking if i want to do it i just pay the going rate.
    What can little old me do about it. Not a lot.
