With those big gas guzzlers they're used to they're suffering too.well ya since they have all the oil under their control i think it's pretty much their fault. they are the only ones benefitting from the ridiculously high oil prices.
Why not? is the nation out of gas?And you can't stay at home running your generator during load-shedding either...
If in doubt blame Jersey - thats what I always say
This is OPEC driving up the prices. OPEC is a cartel, they fix pricesare you fing kidding me? this is f*****g ridiculous! how much more of our money is america going to suck out of us!!!? the flippin oil price rises every bloody day(and opec doesn't give a ****) and as a result, we have to pay a sh1tload extra for petrol. we should bloody boycott this crap. they make so much money already, but it's never enough for them. they always want more.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Do_Nothing_FarmingThe truth is everyone is to blame.
6. Cutting the lawn with a Petrol Weed-eater instead of keeping a couple of goats or cows in your backyard.
7. The last point was a joke, but one can add quite a few more reasons to this list.
That idea has been brought forth by people before, it won't work for several reason:I heard that @ sasol the cost to produce petrol is about R1.50 /L
Ok, that is before they add their proffit.
So lets say they make 100% proffit, that would give R3 /L
The rest is taxes and leavies like the RAF
Local fuel is cheaper, but the price is fixed by gov.
Best all of us can do is skip all the International feuling stations and only use local garage firms. That way any money they make would stay in the country and would strengthen the Rand, which in turn would lower the price on the extra oil we have to import to make feul.
So use Sasol & Engen & Exel
SKIP Shell, Total & BP
That is the only way we can make a diffrence in the price we pay on feul exept if someone has a better plan?
We end up buying from overseas yes, but it would be better if we could empty the local reserves first then use the international feul. Well thing don`t allways work out the way you would like it to be, lots of pl don't read these threads and more than half that do read won't do any thing about it.That idea has been brought forth by people before, it won't work for several reason:
First SA doesn't produce enough oil to fill our need, so regardless of what petrol station you fill up at you end up buying petrol from overseas.
I did not say/mean it would change the global oil price, but it would change the price SA importers pay since the rand would strengthen.Thirdly even if every single person in SA agreed to boycott those fuel stations it would have no impact on the global oil price, where just a blimp on the scope of the grand scheme of things VS. the rest of the world.
But that's just regular diesel, right? What about LSD (Low-Sulphur Diesel)?Just a note for you diesel thirsty monster drivers (and other diesel users). Find yourselve a diesel depot. At the mo, I pay 46c a liter less than at my local service sta. Diesel is not regulated in terms of price.
If you're in KZN - there's one in Jacobs, Archery rd. Theres one next to the Engen one stop in Mooi River (about 55c a liter cheaper). These also one for travellers just off the highway at Harrismith.
Still, now it's going to be 52c a liter more.
