( I fill the tank only on Saturday/Sunday.22nd is Friday so I won't fill it!! )
It will not make any difference even if all countrymen won't purchase for entire week.Because govt knows that someday or later you are going to purchase it unless you are ready for bicycle or horse carriage.
Better solution is use public transport as much as possible and avoid unnecessary travelling.Even if you against Parliament wall,govt. won't change its decision when necessary food prices,petrol,electricity prices are conerned.

This is one of those wive's tales, Internet Hoaxes and stupid things. You will not need to follow this, it will not make a difference. It is a chain e-mail.

Well, even if this movement succeeds(no one bought fuel on the 22nd), it may and probably will counter-fire on us(the consumers). If the Oil companies make a loss, they might increase the price of fuel further to make up for the loss.

So half the public better buy some fuel on the 22nd !!!

Not just that, but if you don't buy on the 22nd you're going to have to buy on some other day you'd otherwise not buy on or end up with an empty tank

Anyway, the only ones you're hurting are the gas station operators. They're the ones surviving on paperthin margins and the lack of income on one day hurts them badly (even if it's in part recovered on other days, there's the loss of interest and possible penalties to their suppliers for not selling enough).

It's a hoax, pure and simple, and has been known to be so for years (though usually it's the US or Europe that's targeted).

From the link: http://www.kshitij.com/research/petrol.shtml,
the Petrol rate in Pakistan is Rs 43.98 per Ltr

But it is true that in Malaysia the petrol prices are very cheap.
