MSTA campaigns for consumer action on petrol prices
The Motorcycle Show Traders Association has launched a campaign encouraging consumers to boycott petrol stations owned by the two biggest oil companies, Esso and BP.
The Association wants all consumers to stop buying fuel from Esso and BP stations for the remainder of 2008, reasoning that if the pair aren't selling petrol, they would look to encourage customers back by cutting the price of their fuel.
If that happens, other petrol stations would effectively be forced to follow suit, and cut their price.
Customers should only go back to Esso and BP once the price per litre falls back to around 69p, the MSTA says.
