Semi-Crazy petrol price idea

This is about petrol prices and an invitation to join the resistance. By the end of this month petrol prices are set to soar even higher.

If we want the petrol price to come down, we all need to take some intelligent, united action. Last year there was a "don't buy petrol day"-but the oil companies just laughed at that because they knew that we would "hurt" ourselves by refusing to buy petrol. It was more of an inconvenience to us than a problem to them.

But, whoever thought of the ideas, has come up with a plan that can really work.


By now you probably thinking petrol priced at about R7.00 is cheap. It is currently at +- R8.00 for regular and unleaded.

Now that the oil companies and the OPEC nations (the bullies like US and Britain) have conditioned us to think that the cost of a liter is cheap at R 7.00 , we need to take aggressive action to teach them that buyers control the marketplace......... not the sellers.

With the price of petrol going up 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.


Since we rely on our cars, we just cannot stop buying petrol. But we can have an impact on petrol prices if we all act together to force a price war.

Here's the idea:

For the rest of the year, don't purchase any petrol from the two biggest overseas oil companies (which are now one), SHELL and BP...(Local is Lekka - So buy Sasol / Engen / Excel) If the overseas companies 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 petrol buyers.

It is really simple to do!

Now, don't wimp out at this point...keep reading, and all will be revealed as to how simple it is to reach millions of people.

I am sending this message to 30 people. If each in turn sends it to another 10 people (30 x 10 = 300)...and those 300 send it to at least 10 people 300 x 10 = 3000) And so on, by the time the message reaches the sixth generation of people; we will have reached over 3 million consumers!

If those 3 million people get exited and pass this on to 10 friends each then 30 million consumers will have been reached. If it goes one level further, you guessed it three hundred million people!

Again, all you have to do is to send this to 10 people. That's all.

How long will all that take? If each of us sends this e-mail out to 10 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 you're fed up paying too much for petrol, please pass this message on.

COMMENCING NOW DON'T BUY BP /SHELL, go and support SA Brand SASOL, Engen and Excel. Africa must stop feeding the world giants it must feed itself.
