Petrol Price Hike

Today: RM 1.92/litre
Tomorrow: RM 2.70/litre

Father called back to ask me fill up the car petrol ASAP because there's an increase of 78 cent.

" KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi on Wednesday announced the new price for petrol is RM2.70 a litre, effective midnight tonight.
He announced that the price of petrol would be increased by 78sen and diesel by RM1. "

[The Star news]

Pics taken from here.

Pumped total of 24.51 L just now, which cost RM 47.06. If the new price is used, then I'll have to pay RM 66.18! I've saved RM 19.11, quite a lot!

A Proton Wira's fuel capacity is 50 litre. Full tank petrol will cost RM 96. So if the new price takes into effect..... bloody RM 135!!

Pity those fellas with big cars, those with more than 2.0L engine displacement vehicles will have to suffer more because those cars need more fuel, which means have to burn a bigger hole in the pocket. I take a Mercedes E class for example, total fuel capacity is 65L, let's say the owner filled 60L..... RM 162.... (-__-")

Also, diesel price also increased by RM 1, to RM 2.58. Now that the lorry drivers and diesel-vehicle owners will no longer enjoying the low price of diesel. The drivers had protested in a few European countries, and I know those local drivers wouldn't be too happy as well.

Then again, we shall be considering what the heck Abdullah's government is doing? This isn't the first time they increase the petrol price already.... I guess with this price hike, lol 13th GE, bye bye to BN!

I'm doubtful what will they be using the money after reducing the fuel subsidy. They say the money will be spent on something useful to the people (their usual blank promise), but then previous records clearly shows that the fund will be used for something only benefits a certain party, so after all, we people will have to suffer all the consequences.

And yea, this will be another reason why Abdullah should step down as the PM.....

The notorious sleeping PM of Malaysia, Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.


Jason send me few pics he just took from a petrol station nearby his place in Melaka.
LOL those people are Q'ing up to fill in petrol. This is just the beginning, later at night sure jam crazily!

Here's a diagram regarding fuel price in Malaysia since 2004.
