"the Requirement for lower petrol prices is a question that engages hundreds of thousands of people."
"But is now growing a second group of forward – who want to do the opposite and raise the price of gasoline."
"We are not unsympathetic to the problems that exist for people in rural areas, but for the climate you have to raise the price, not lower," says Viktor Erik Jensen, the initiator of the Bensinupproret 3.0."
"Protestgruppen Bensinupproret 2.0 continues to grow at a record pace on Facebook – on Monday afternoon, the total number of members to over 460 000."
"at the same time, are now also beginning to Bensinupproret 3.0 – a group who want to raise gasoline prices – to attract more and more followers"
"– the Purpose is to gather people who believe that the price of gasoline and other fuels from fossil fuels must be raised rather than lowered for us to be able to adapt to a more climate-friendly society, " says 35-year-old Lundabon Viktor Erik Jensen, who has started Bensinupproret 3.0."
"the Group has, in one week collected more than 2 000 people. Among the members there are a number of different ideas for how the transition to a less bensinberoende Sweden would be able to see out, " says Viktor."
"One of the topics discussed is how man would be able to raise prices at the petrol pump but at the same time risking that people in rural areas are hard hit economically."
"– Some want to be a part of the tax revenues raised on gasoline shall be redistributed to those who live in rural areas."
"Important to discuss"
"He is aware, however, that the requirement of higher gasoline prices is likely to learn to provoke those who believe that people in rural areas hit hard by the price increases."
"– But I believe that you need to have these two motpolerna to be able to discuss and come to a common ground that you can stand on. It is the way it works in all the discussions, someone wants to legalize , another wants to ban and then discuss in order to reach a compromise."
