    Default petrol prices

    Hi All

    Please forward this on, if you don't drive forward it to someone who
    does. Who knows maybe we can have an impact!
    We are hitting £1.25 a litre in some areas now, soon we will be faced
    with paying £1.50 a litre. Well over £6 a gallon for the older
    readers!!

    Fuel WILL cost £2.00 per litre by September 2008...

    As a result, everything else is costing more, too.
    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 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.
    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
    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
    Get Started!

    What a load of twaddle typical chain letter email , Esso , BP etc dont make there billions from selling petrol on forecourts, and it will never hit 69p a litre as the tax is about 70 odd pence

    This has been around for at least 2 years.

    Guess who ESSO and BP sell fuel to?? Asda, Tesco, etc etc. and they make serious money from it too, so why would it have any effect?
    Unfortunately, letters like this are created by ignorant people who think that Asda et al drill for their own oil and then refine it.. ..

    I have been buying Shell unleaded cheaper than Tesco's. Supermarket fuel is not always the cheapest. When our local independent stopped retailing fuel Tescos upped their prices.

    I always buy the cheapest fuel around my locality.

    No-one said the supermarkets are always the cheapest, but round me they generally are..

    i have to agree, i have been using shell for many years as it was the cheapest, then switched to tesco as undercut by about 4p per litre, now Shell is back to the cheapest, so it does pay to shop around. The local paper has petrolprice watch so it pays to keep an eye out, in my area BP are by far the most expensive, diesel shell 127.9 tesco 127.9 bp 130.9, Indi 128.9 as of this morning.
