the fwded email below makes great sense!...
petronas is a big no-no for me since the day i started driving...
people may ask... "why not help petronas which is also the pride and joy of malaysia?!?"....
my usual reply would be... "why make the rich richer (read : umno and friends)?!?"...
i know couple of people who'd rather take the risk and go thru the traffic with an empty tank and push his car to the side of the road in case the petrol dried up and pay tow truck driver to buy petrol, than to refill his tank in petronas which may be situated just a stone throw away fm where he is stucked... one incident just happened last week to a client of mine somewhere in rawang... he did just like wat i have mentioned!... i am proud of these couple of people and am sure there are loads more people out there like that!... you guys certainly made a difference!..
let's keep the 12th general election fire buring and flaming and continue to push for a malaysia baru!...
p/s ; so what petronas quality is apparently better?!?... can yr car move with other brands of oil?!?... don't compromise yr stand when you know you want to eliminate the robbers and conmen in the country who are sitting up there in the throne which allowance just slashed by a mere 10% when the oil hiked to more than 40%...
THIS IS NOT THE 'DON'T BUY' PETROL FOR ONE DAY, BUT
IT WILL SHOW YOU HOW CAR OWNERS CAN GET GASOLINE
PRICE DOWN TO US$2.00 PER GALLON BY JUST FORWARDING
THIS EMAIL TO 10 PEOPLE !!!
This idea was written out by a retired Coca Cola
Executive. It came from one of his engineer buddies
who retired from Halliburton, an oil exploration
company in U.S. If you are tired of the gasoline
price is going up and up, AND it will continue to
rise, take time to read this please.
Mr Phillip Hollsworth offered his good idea. This
makes MUCH MORE SENSE than the 'don't buy gasoline
on a certain day' campaign that was going around
last year April or May! It's worth your effort to
join the campaign !!!!
I heard that price of petrol going to hit close to
US$ 4.00 a gallon by next summer, and it might go
up higher !
YOU want gasoline prices to come down ?
All we need to do is we must take some intelligent,
UNITED ACTION NOW.
The oil companies laughed at us on last year 'Don't
Buy Petrol For One day Campaign' because they knew
we wouldn't continue to 'hurt' ourselves by
refusing to buy gasoline. It was more of an
inconvenience to us than it was a problem to the
oil companies. This time is different, consumers
have the power to bring down the price of goods !!!
This is a plan that can really work. Please read
on and join us!
You're probably thinking that gasoline priced at
about $2.00/gallon is normal due to oil price has
hit all time high of US$120/barrel !!!
The oil companies and the OPEC nations have
conditioned us to think that the only way for the
gasoline price is up, medias reporting brisk car
sales in China and India, power hungry nations
building more power plants to grow their economy,
the growth of dragon(China) and elephant(India)
will gobble up most of the world resources; oil
reserve going down and depleting in 50 years time,
this is how we are being conditioned(brain washed)
NOW we need to act together to show them(oil
companies and OPEC) that BUYERS can control the
marketplace... not sellers.
The only way we are going to see the price of gas
coming down to a reasonable level is if we hit oil
companies' revenue by not buying their products!
And, we can do it WITHOUThurting ourselves.
How? Since many of us owned and rely on our cars,
we can't just stop buying gasoline!!!!
But we CAN have an impact on gas price if we all
act together to force a price war among the oil
Here's the idea: For the rest of this year, DON'T
buy gasoline from the two biggest companies,
EXXON-MOBIL and SHELL, some car owners being brain
washed to use a particular brand of petrol in order
to keep their car engines in tip top condition
which is not true, any brand ! will work well for
your cars, you can reconfirm this if you have a
friend who is a petroleum engineer, If not, just
fill up your tank with another brand which you
never used before to confirm it.
When the oil companies that we are boycotting are
not selling any gas for a week, they will be
inclined to reduce their prices. If they reduce
their prices, the other companies will have to
follow suit; oil companies work like a cartel !!!!
To have an impact, we need to reach literally
millions of Exxon-Mobil and SHELL gas buyers.. In
the past, it was an uphill task but now, it's
really simple to reach millions even billions of
people. Keep reading and I will show you how to do
it through the power of internet.
I am sending this note to 30 people. If each of us
send it to at least ten more (30 x 10 = 300) ...
and those 300 send it to at least ten more (300 x10
=3,000)... and so on, by the time the message
reaches the sixth group 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
If it goes one level further, you guessed it.....
THREE HUNDRED MILLIONs PEOPLE!!! This 300 millions
people just email this to 5 of his/her contacts, we
reached 1.5 billions people !!!
Are you excited as I am ? all you have to do is
send this to 10 people or more if you can, its so
simple, isn't it? Just Do it ! OK ???
(If you don't understand how we can reach 1500
MILLIONS people and all you have to do is send this
to 10 people.
How long would all this take? If each of us sends!
this e- mail out to ten or more people within one
day of receipt, all 1500 MILLIONs people could be
contacted within the next 9 days !!!
I'll bet you didn't think you and I had so much
power, did you! Acting together we can make a
If this makes sense to you, please pass this
message on. I suggest that we don't buy from
EXXON-MOBIL and SHELL UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES
AND KEEP THEM DOWN. THIS CAN REALLY WORK.
