Stress-free pricing plan lets M’sians freak out about petrol weekly instead of monthly
MALAYSIA: Today the nation applauded Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Hamzah Zainuddin’s wise decision to replace the current system which had motorists freaking out about fuel prices each month with a much improved stress-free method which will have Malaysians freaking out about fuel prices every seven days.
“This is much better than allowing petrol stations to set prices daily based on competition or supply and demand,” said one motorist, “having the government send out price ceilings to every petrol station in the country despite the requests from Petrol Dealership Associations not to is definitely the way to go! With the government involved in determining and communicating prices, what could possibly go wrong?”
“I think the weekly petrol prices will bring the nation together,” said one hopeful lady filling up her Honda, “each week, Malaysians of all races will gather at petrol stations to blame the government for either rising fuel prices or for not telling them it would be cheaper to fill up next week!”
