OPEC, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries announced today that they will give all oil produced in the month of June away for free.
It is believed that the announcement follows an increasing level of concern within the oil industry that western economies will move away from their product to wind power, wave power and nuclear energy.
In response, the nations intend to begin a number of loyalty programmes and giveaways to maintain the demand of the western economies.
June will see approximately 1 million barrels of oil given away for free.
July will be "Manchester United Month" in which anyone purchasing 100 barrels in a single go, will receive a Wayne Rooney signed shirt.
