Call to ban purchase of petrol on February 14
Vindhas | 05 Feb 2011

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 thus causing them a net loss of over 4.6 billion dollars.

PETROL IN Pakistan Rs 17 per litre, Malaysia Rs 18 per litre, In India it's Rs.65 per litre!
 
Why is there a difference within India itself? World market crude oil is not the reason for this. It's all Gain for private owners? As we are the general public, or Common Man as R.K. Laxman would have said, we have to raise our voice, let's raise through mass agitation.
 
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 February 14 has been formally declared a day of mass agitation. On that 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 information to everyone you know. Mark your calendars and make
14 February , a day when the citizens will say, “Enough is Enough”.
