Thread: Don't Buy Petrol On 24 Jan 2008!!!

    Default Don't Buy Petrol On 24 Jan 2008!!!

    Hi folks,.......... Lets give it a try!

    Lets fight the high cost of PETROL. Lets HELP OURSELVES against the PETROL COMPANIES!!
    If we all cooperate, it should give a SHOCK to the petrol industry!
    Lets give it a try. Got NOTHING to lose !!!

    See message below>>>>>>


    IT HAS BEEN CALCULATED THAT IF EVERYONE DID NOT PURCHASE A DROP OF
    PETROL FOR ONE DAY AND ALL AT THE SAME TIME, THE OIL COMPANIES WOULD
    CHOKE ON THEIR STOCKPILES.

    AT THE SAME TIME IT WOULD HIT THE ENTIRE INDUSTRY WITH A NET LOSS OVER
    4.6 BILLION DOLLARS WHICH AFFECTS THE BOTTOM LINES OF THE OIL COMPANIES.
    THEREFORE '24th JANUARY ' HAS BEEN FORMALLY DECLARED 'STICK IT UP
    THEIR BEHIND 'DAY AND THE PEOPLE OF THIS NATION SHOULD NOT BUY A
    SINGLE DROP OF PETROL THAT DAY.


    THE ONLY WAY THIS CAN BE DONE IS IF YOU FORWARD THIS E-MAIL TO AS MANY
    PEOPLE AS YOU CAN AND AS QUICKLY AS YOU CAN TO GET THE WORD OUT.
    WAITING ON THE GOVERNMENT TO STEP IN AND CONTROL THE PRICES IS NOT
    GOING TO HAPPEN. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE REDUCTION AND CONTROL IN PRICES
    THAT THE ARAB NATIONS PROMISED TWO WEEKS AGO?

    REMEMBER ONE THING, NOT ONLY IS THE PRICE OF PETROL GOING UP BUT
    AT THE SAME TIME AIRLINES ARE FORCED TO RAISE THEIR PRICES,
    TRUCKING COMPANIES ARE FORCED TO RAISE THEIR PRICES WHICH AFFECTS
    PRICES ON EVERYTHING THAT IS SHIPPED. THINGS LIKE FOOD, CLOTHING,
    BUILDING SUPPLIES MEDICAL SUPPLIES ETC. WHO PAYS IN THE END? WE DO!


    WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. IF THEY DON'T GET THE MESSAGE AFTER ONE DAY,
    WE WILL DO IT AGAIN AND AGAIN. SO DO YOUR PART AND SPREAD THE WORD.
    FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW. MARK YOUR CALENDARS AND MAKE
    24 JANUARY A DAY THAT THE CITIZENS SAY 'ENOUGH IS ENOUGH'.

    We forward so many junk email to many of our friends, now let us do it
    for some useful cause to cut down the price of the petrol........

    REMEMBER: JANUARY 24, 2008.... NO Petrol Day...!

    Please 'Think Of It ...............

    That's exactly the reason why this action will not work.
    We would only be deferring the purchase to another day and the oil companies know it.
    It just might backfire on us if everybody who needed to top up on 24 Jan 08 but didn't, turned up the next day and cause a run on the supply of petrol instead.

    Anyway, I would be supporting this cause... because I don't need to top up tomorrow.

    it won't be very useful if the total consumption of petrol still maintain the same over the month. It will only show as a funny trough in their daily sales graph.

    Silly idea, on 24th Jan petrol companies can just give a mere 5% discount and u will see a sea of cars queue up to pump. If u want to fight the petrol companies, u stop driving and take mrt instead.

    defer purchase does not equate stop purchase

    No different lah bros,i've been working with a petroleum company here since 92...i've enjoyed the same benefits if not better ones...cars need petrol...if u dont pump on 24th,u'll pump on other days...unless ofcourse u dont need petrol to run your cars? its not the petroleum companies fault entirely for the hike in prices...govt taxes also play some part...

    Nice idea. It would be interesting if people would stop consuming petrol for a day. Even more, imagine how much you could annoy petrol companies if you reduced your petrol consumption in the long term, e.g. by slight changes to your lifestyle!

    Oh, you mean just not buying petrol on a certain day? Now, what is this going to achieve ...?
