I dont think that is the way to go about it, that has no effect.
Have you heard of people power, simple lets make Saturday a day when the people of Britian say we are not going to buy petrol on that day. We dont go JUST AN IDEA.

I use PetrolPrices.com and only buy from the cheapest, it would make more of an impact if we just boycotted the likes of Shell & BP & Texaco.

Not buying petrol for one day isn't going to change anything.

The big problems is that we are all so very dependant on diesel and petrol for our everyday lives, they have to pardon a pun, got us 'over a barrel'.

If you dont but on one particular day whay happens, you either prepare and buy the day before or the day after, the oil companies still get your money.

The oil company is greedy and so is the government, not just the present one but the one before it as well.

We do need to do something though, but what, something that will hit them both in the pocket long term and now. Sell our cars and walk !!
