"Promoter of the so-called bensinupproret, Jan-Olof"
"today gather members around the country to protest against petrol price – despite the fact that it is just as expensive to drive a car today as it was 30 years ago."
"The Swedish bilåkarna have had enough. The price of petrol and diesel are unacceptably high. It considers, in any case, Janne Berglund and many others, for in a short time, his initiative on Facebook, Bensinupproret 2.0, scored more than 570 000 members."
"In the day thinking they manifest their dissatisfaction in various locations in the country."
"– We have arranged social gatherings for our members where we will meet and get to know each other, " says Janne Berglund."
TT: But you want to also demonstrate your dissatisfaction?"
"– Yes, it is clear. Right now we have 573 000 members, which is an incredible number."
"TT: Why are you so unhappy?"
"– because it is a 64% tax on fuel, which is far too much. We want to take away the vat and the energy tax and in that case the land price of about twelve dollars per liter."
"want To lower the price of gasoline so heavily in these times when the threat from climate change becomes increasingly clear, however, is controversial. In addition, the calculations indicate that it is not more expensive to run a car today than it was in 1990, when the price blew up femkronorsvallen."
"taking into account inflation corresponds to the current price of about sek 17 per liter 10:50 kronor in 1990, according to statistics SWEDEN. The price of a liter has only risen 5-6 sek per liter in 30 years. But during the same time the car's fuel consumption has been reduced significantly. According to the automotive industry draws an average car today, only just over half as much fuel as the cars. Thus, to drive his car today is about as expensive (or cheap) as in the past, the record-high price."
"On the question of why – despite this fact, still rumbles in billeden, Jan-Olof"
" I can only conclude that many of our members find it difficult to get it to go together and survive because of the high price of petrol and diesel. They need to shop, go to work, and so on. They may not go together, " he says."
"In the wake of the uprising, several political parties latched on to air his dissatisfaction over the government's policy. An analysis by SvD show that both the Moderates and the Christian democrats paid for or sponsored ads on Facebook where the cape is directed against the government, which is portrayed as if on the heels of the countryside."
"– There are signs that the politicians have begun to listen a little bit. We have received an invitation to Parliament next week, but we will not give us until we have received through all of our requirements. On 31 may, we are organising a demonstration in Stockholm, sweden with the final destination Comment, " says Janne Berglund."
