This email with the subject "Re: Read and Forward it - For something better" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Thu, 12 Jun 2008 11:16:57 -0700 and has been classified as a Generic Scam.
The sender was "pradyumna goli" <firstname.lastname@example.org>, although it may have been spoofed.
I went through this email, and looks like this is a hoax email spread all other the India. One thing is true that the petrol prices are shooting up like crazy.
Everyone knows that the reason for increase in petrol prices is the crude oil prices are going up every day.
I just want to let you know the fact.
The petrol prices in Pakistan and Malaysia are very low(Rs.17/Rs.18) is a big HOAX and jock.
According to the Pakistan's news papers( Daily Times), the price of petrol have been increased from Rs 58.7 a litre to Rs 62.81 a liter, the price of diesel from Rs 36.07 a litre to Rs 38.96, kerosene oil price from Rs 38.73 a liter to Rs 41.44, and the price of HOBC has been increased from Rs 69.88 a liter to Rs 74.77 a liter.
For more detailed information please click the link below or if the link doesn't work then please check attached print screen of the news paper.

Petrol prices are increased globally not just in India. So people have to understand that the petrol is not produced in India, it is bought from middle east countries.
If the price of CRUD oil increases than obviously the price of petrol increases.
FYI: I am not know to most of them in this email group. I know only two guys( Gujjar Partha sarathi and Gujjari Madhusudhan Rao) in this group.
Petrol in Pakistan Rs17 per litr
Malaysia Rs 18 per litr
In India it's Rs.59 per litr
Why is there a difference within India itself? World Market CRUDE Oil is not
the reason for this. It's all Gain for private owners? As we are the
general public, or Common Man as R.K.Laxman wud hv said, we have to
raise our voice, let's raise thru Emails.
Forward this to all Indians who care.
IT HAS BEEN CALCULATED THAT IF EVERYONE DID NOT PURCHASE A DROP OF
PETROL FOR ONE DAY AND ALL AT THE SAME TIME, THE OIL COMPANIES WOULD
CHOKE ON THEIR STOCKPILES.
AT THE SAME TIME IT WOULD HIT THE ENTIRE INDUSTRY WITH A NET LOSS
OVER 4.6 BILLION DOLLARS WHICH AFFECTS THE BOTTOM LINES OF THE OIL
THEREFORE "June 14 th" HAS BEEN FORMALLY DECLARED
"STICK IT UP THEIR BEHIND " DAY AND THE PEOPLE OF THIS NATION SHOULD
NOT BUY A SINGLE DROP OF PETROL THAT DAY.
THE ONLY WAY THIS CAN BE DONE IS IF YOU FORWARD THIS E-MAIL TO AS
MANY PEOPLE AS YOU CAN AND AS QUICKLY AS YOU CAN TO GET THE WORD
OUT. WAITING ON THE GOVERNMENT TO STEP IN AND CONTROL THE PRICES IS
NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE REDUCTION AND CONTROL
IN PRICES THAT THE ARAB NATIONS PROMISED TWO WEEKS AGO?
REMEMBER ONE THING, NOT ONLY IS THE PRICE OF PETROL GOING UP BUT
AT THE SAME TIME AIRLINES ARE FORCED TO RAISE THEIR PRICES,
TRUCKING COMPANIES ARE FORCED TO RAISE THEIR PRICES WHICH AFFECTS
PRICES ON EVERYTHING THAT IS SHIPPED. THINGS LIKE FOOD, CLOTHING,
BUILDING SUPPLIES MEDICAL SUPPLIES ETC. WHO PAYS IN THE END? WE
WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.IF THEY DON'T GET THE MESSAGE AFTER ONE
DAY, WE WILL DO IT AGAIN AND AGAIN. SO DO YOUR PART AND SPREAD THE
WORD. FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW. MARK YOUR
CALENDARS AND MAKE June 14 th
A DAY THAT THE CITIZENS SAY
"ENOUGH IS ENOUGH"
We forward so many junk email to many of our friends, now let us do
it for some useful cause to cut down the price of the petrol .. ....
REMEMBER : June 14 th
