Just received this email - expect you probably will soon too. Don't really expect it to work as I buy from Shell generally anyway (cheapest in Watford). Read and see what you think

We are going to hit close to 89p a litre by the summer. Want petrol prices to come down? We need to take some intelligent, united action. 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 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 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 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 whimp out on me 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 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 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 UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR

PRICES TO THE 69p a LITRE RANGE



Action:



It's easy to make this happen. Just forward this email, and buy your petrol

at Shell, Tesco, Sainsburys, Morrisons (75p)Jet etc. i.e. boycott BP and

Esso.
