Re: Dont buy BP fuel email
Haha this is completely ridiculous. The problem isn't with BP or any other supplier of fuel, they charge around 38p per litre of fuel, the garage takes around 4p forcourt charges and guess who takes the other 60/70ish pence?... Correct tax.
If we only had to pay what BP or anyone else want for petrol then i wouldn't mind one bit. The tax rate on fuel is ridiculous but its never going to drop unless people stop buying fuel full stop, which will never happen. The government win all ways, people need fuel so its always being bought and they reap a massive tax off it, and if people stopped buying fuel they'de be glad of the drop in emissions (Even though we all know car emissions do jack to the environment in the long term) and keep the tax there anyway.
Maybe your office email/letter/whatever should be suggesting ways to seige the government rather than a feeble attempt at boycotting fuel stations, to which nobody responds.
