    These have been going around for ages.

    Its one of those things where it goes around, everyone gets all excited, and then no one does it.

    i dont know about where you live, but it wouldn't work here cos there are lots of towns that only have one service station, so you get no choice.

    This wouldn't work even if everyone tried it.

    Most major petrol forecourts in the UK all get their fuel from the same refineries so as long as the refineries are still shifting fuel nothing will change.

    Anyway most of the price of petrol is made up by tax and not the companies own prices.

    If people did what he wants it would become a war on Esso & BP and other companies would take their place. Not sure that's the aim really?

    The only practical way to change the price of oil without invading Saudi Arabia or Iran is to get the government to tax it less. 70% of what you pay at the pump is tax but I think you'd have a hell of a fight on your hands to get parliament to give up that kind of revenue. Petrol's addictive stuff!
