Beginning to wonder if it is a bit of a scam to get peoples email addresses as all I get now is basically spam mails from them offering discounts or offers on car related items.

Easily enough members now to broker a deal with a big player. Pretty much given up on it and I think people will just start unsubscribing shortly, I will if I haven't heard something by the end of the summer.

What a pile of bobbins this has turned out to be.

The latest update includes these gems:

[ QUOTE ]

As most of you have noticed, fuel prices have dropped by about 10% since our last update. As an organisation that currently represents almost 500,000 UK motorists, Pipeline has lobbied hard for price reductions and we would like to believe that our voice has been heard.

It has certainly helped matters that the price of crude oil has dropped.

Does the bloke really think he has had any influence on reducing prices at the pumps? I think he'll find the falling crude oil prices are responsible for the drop in prices, not him waving his list of email addresses. What a tosser.

I wonder if he honestly believes the recent price wars between the supermarkets and the big names were a kneejerk reaction to his mythical scheme?

I am happy to confirm that the Pipeline Card project is still underway despite the various problems but we have taken a different tack now.

Ah, I see. So the scheme they've been trying to drag off the ground for a couple of years now has fallen flat on its face as it doesn't work. Never mind, try again from a different angle.

They were kind enough to send me links to other parts of their websites they're trying to promote (compare energy bills etc) so it's not all bad news tongue.gif

I think the whole thing has now lost any credibility it originally had.

I tend to agree Milo, the UN restoring some sort of peace in the Lebanon is resulted in the drop in petrol prices as a result of renewed investment in the Middle East from overseas investors in the region and renewed confidence which means tradin is good which means crude oil production increases slightly and the prices drop.

Well thats a simplistic view anyway, but not as simple as his. What the 'different tack' anyway?

I had an update from him yesterday, seems to me like he is kind of saying the recent reduction in fuel prices was help by them...

I had 2 or 3 emails from them with updates about the hamster coffee.gif
