    This is a hoax that has been going around the internet for ages.

    This will not work simply because the local distributor / retailers of fuels here do not have full control of the prices of fuel. OPEC also does not fully control the prices of the fuel. Heck, they are the ones who are trying to stabilize the price by pumping in more output.

    Petron last year only had a net profit of P1B. In contrast, PLDT posted a net profit of P28B. I guess you should also call to boycott PLDT then and just use Bayantel?

    I read somewhere in the newspapers na pinag-iisipan na daw ng isang car automaker to bring in their hybrid cars here... there's only one catch. the battery that runs the car lasts for 1 1/2 yrs lang daw and the battery costs around P100-150K. so whatever you save on fuel... better put it in the bank to buy fresh batteries later

    If you want to boycott big oil co. you should excempt Caltex coz Caltex is now closing lots of thier outlets coz oil business here in the phil is really not worth it now a days. Caltex already close their refinery.
    Shell Phillipines loss billions of pesos just last year buti pang petron may 1B na income pero tingin pure publicity coz Aramco want to sell out their shares early next year.So guys i hate to say this but worst yet to come.


    If you want BIG DISCOUNT apply Shell Citibank 4% rebate walang sinabi 2% ng petron he he he he... Habang may Buhay May pag-asa
    MALAYO ANG MARARATING...

    The concept is true but it would have to be on a worldscale scenario and not only on the local level. We are basically a totally reactive and follower of the world market pricing wla tayo magagawa dyan. IMHO the culprit for all of these skyrocketing prices is not the OPEC alone nor INDIA and CHINA's growth. It is those Bastard Oil trader that keeps on speculating the oil prices. Though OPEC is now benefitting from these booming prices they had these fear that it could backfire on their cartel. At these time they are literally pushing for the whole world to adopt and invent new technologies that could replace OIL, they surely doesn't want to have that scenario. kya nga members of OPEC are trying their best to pumpout more to stabilize the Oil prices. Sana nga mafast track na ang alternative fuel...ewan ko lang mangyari sa mga ARABS...that's only what they got..but at the end of the day the only benefitted are those speculators ..
