    This makes MUCH MORE SENSE than the boycott campaign and rallies against gas companies lately.

    The oil companies just laughed at that because they knew we couldn't continue to "hurt" ourselves by refusing to buy gas. It was more of an inconvenience to us than it was a problem for them.

    BUT, whoever thought of this idea, has come up with a plan that can really work.

    Please read on and join us!

    Currently, unleaded gasoline is over P33.00 and it is still going up (sometimes unnoticed). Despite the fact that a barrel of oil has gone down to US$62 from US$70 (when Superstorm Katrina hit New Orleans), gasoline prices are still going up instead of a downward trend.

    Worst, the big oil players such as Caltex, Shell and Petron claim that they are still losing money. It is time we need to take aggressive action to teach them that BUYERS control the marketplace....not sellers. The only way we are going to see the price of gas go down is if we hit them back by not purchasing their gas!

    And we can do that WITHOUT hurting ourselves. How?

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

    Here's the idea:

    For the rest of this year, DON"T purchase ANY gasoline from the two biggest foreign oil companies such as SHELL and CALTEX.

    For now, let us buy gas only from Petron and/or small players such as SeaOil, Total, etc.

    If CALTEX and SHELL are not selling any gas, they will be forced to reduce their prices and if they reduce their prices, other companies will have no choice but to follow suit. Thus, the start of a price war. In this way, the buying public wins.

    But to have an impact, we need to reach literally millions of Shell and Caltex gas buyers. I am sending this note to about thirty people. If you send it to at least ten more, e.g., 30 x 10 = 300 and those 300 send it to at least ten ore, e.g., 300 x 10 = 3,000 and so on, by the time the message reaches the sixth generation of people (and granting all will cooperate), we will have reached over THREE MILLION car owners!

    Again, all you have to do is just send this to 10 people and

    DON"T purchase ANY gasoline from Shell and Caltex. Remember, the main idea is TO FORCE A PRICE WAR and not hurt ourselves or the economy.

    That's all.

    How long would all that take before we can feel the effect? If each of us sends this email out to ten more people within one day of receipt, all 3 MILLION people could conceivably be contacted within the next 8 days!!! Acting together can make a big difference.

    If this makes sense to you, please pass this message on.

    PLEASE HOLD OUT UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES TO THE P20.00/LITER RANGE AND KEEP THEM DOWN.

    THIS CAN REALLY WORK.!!!
    luma na yan, and BS lang yan. mukhang taga petron nag sulat.

    We'll just have to give the government the benefit of the doubt. It'll take years before we would feel anything as a result of E-VAT.

    For the meantime, let's just sit back and wait. Complaining before anything has actually happened will do absolutely nothing.

    OT:
    we already gave this governement the benefit of the doubt many times...
    1st nung bumaligtad sya sa promise nya (in front of PMA cadets at that) na hindi na sya tatakbo and will only work for the benefit of the people...
    ..then nung nagbayad tayo ng road-user's tax na napunta lang sa campaign war chest nya.
    .. at nung nag release sila ng fertilizer funds ...na naglahong parang bula.

    this governement already takes 1/5 to 1/4 of our salary, and then after that, they take another 10% of our net pay?!?! Bwis*T!!!! *$!#***!*&#*!!!!
    hehehehe. sori mods, di ko na mapigilan e.

    back on topic:
    buti na lang diesel di masyado nagtaas. :D

    sa mga naka-gasolina, intayin nyo na sana matuloy yung alco-gas project. balita ko mas mura sya lalabas compared sa unleaded gasoline.

    dapat lang matuloy ung alco gas coz we really need an alternative source of fuel.we hav to stop depending on imported oil and start producing our own energy. Most Filipinos can no longer take any mor price increases of fuel.

    why delude ourselves into thinking that all is well with our fuel prices just because they're on par with our neighbors?

    if only our economies and paychecks are as great as our neighbors'...
