Idea for reducing Petrol Prices

#1
Just had this sent to me as a fwd.. Read it and take up the challenge or bin it and do nothing..Just thought i would share it...

Subject: Fwd: Reduce the price of petrol!!!!!


See what you think and pass it on if you agree with it.

We are hitting 112.9 p a litre in some areas now, soon we will be faced with
paying £1.15 a ltr. 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.


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 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 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 8 days!!! 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.

If not buying from ESSO or BP, who does he suggest? That leaves TEXACO, MURCO and to a certain extent, PACE. Bearing in mind only a small proportion of garages are actually owned by the fuel companies, why wouldn't they just switch to a different supplier? The suppliers that now have the market share once enjoyed by ESSO and BP?

Fucking idiot.

Here's a radical idea for you...

Use less and then watch the petrol companies drop their prices to try and get your custom back.

Supply and demand. Simple economics.

Who supplies the supermarkets with their fuel? Might be worth checking it isn't BP or Esso :roll:

Whilst i accept that folk dislike the idea or even think it is a total waste of time i personally do not consider it spam..

Now in theory if everyone for the next month or so was able to and did only buy their fuel from Shell for example i doubt it would have no impact at all on the other companies..

Like i said read it and do it or read it and not do it..The guy though who sent it originally isn't a fucking idiot as the Eton graduate so articulatley wrote.. Unless that was his name in his signature??? Sorry if it was btw :D

But thank you all the same for your wit for which i will forever hold dear and hope that i in future posts can aspire to..

Good afternoon gentlemen.. :D

Its easy. Theft!

You need:

1.5 metre of good hose pipe.
1 x mouth
1 x Jerry can

That way petrol stops costing after you have recovered the cost of the can and pipe. Do us scousers have to think of everything???

BP's refined product sales for the UK for the third quarter of 2007 were US$350m, out of a total global oil sales (not including E&P etc) of $7,251m. BP's PROFIT for the 3 month period was $4,406.

Have you ever seen a mouse rape an elephant?

And of course a reasonable supply of cars made before ...about 1970.

Easy enough for a scouser to find but those of us who live in the civilized parts of the country might have a problem with that.

You have reinforced the theory that this is a scam by the other oil companies. The 300 million is part of the plan, basically each person in britain will have received it 5 times. so incensed by this endless spamming, they will direct their hatred at Tim Black of 3B Solutions Ltd, they will get in their cars and drive all over the country looking for Tim Back.

Ironically enough, 3B Solutions is a skip hire company.

Errr no. I can assure you there are ways and means of doing this from fiddling in the filler cap area to piercing the tank which is on alot of cars cheap metal. Even if the sensible companies are going plastic.

I got my idea for this post from my sunday morning activity of draining the fuel out of a 2 year old BMW.

I take it you used your teeth to bite a hole in the tank then? Or did you batter a hole in the side with the jerrycan?

Come on if you are going to give us a kit list then at least make sure it contains the kit we are going to need :twisted: :wink:
