Kalau dulu satu tank penuh around RM 60.00, today onwards will be RM 72.00. And that is one full tank. Monthly, my car consume around 5 - 6 full tank.
If 5 full tanks a month, it will be an increase of RM 60 a month!! (12 x 5)
Yes, of course, I'm talking about the talk of the day, or should I say the talk of the week?
Petrol hike is 30sen per litre starting today. Nak cakap byk pun tak guna.
When I arrived office today, everyone is talking about it.
Amelia : Eh, you tau tak petrol naik tiga posen?
Hucs : Tau..which for me translated to RM 60 to 80 per month!!. And that is average usage.
Amelia : Tu laa...I'm thinking of car pooling laa. tak pun naik lrt, park kat mana2 ke..
Azleen : Hmm...nak naik lrt tu yg maleh...tiring tau..
Hucs : Aku dah 5 tahun naik lrt..badan semangat gak lagi..hehehe..tapi actually naik keta lagi tiring...naik bas bleh tido
Raveen : u guys are talking about the petrol hike eh? I used to spend only RM 10 pegi balik office
Hucs : Sori aa.....that is history..
Hucs : Proton savvy punye sales mesti boom punyelah lepas2 ni....
Raveen : Yeah..Savvy is very economical.
Amelia : Ye ke?
Raveen : Hmm..of course la...but kancil lagi jimat
Hucs : Honda pun OK apa...
Amelia : Honda? Lebih kurang ler..mana ada beza..i pakai city kannn...
Hucs : Honda Cup laaa..
Raveen : Ya la..need to be back on motorcyle
Hucs : That one kalau petrol naik pun I tak heran.
Rizana : I rasa I kena start naik komuter ni.
Hucs : Rizana naik commuter? Bleh masuk blog ni...hehehe
Rizana : betul I thought about it just now and it's worth having to buy a decent walking shoes than paying an extra 30 sen a liter for petrol
Hucs : Hmm betul tu..
Besides being more calculative when using the car, what else can we do?
Any idea, please share with me....Mana nak korek duit lagi ni??..baru je buat budget tahunan...isk..isk..
Petrol up 30 sen
The price of petrol and diesel is up by 30 sen a litre effective today, the highest increase in the past two years.
However, the Prime Minister's Department, in a statement, said that this would be the only increase for the year.
Public transport and commercial vehicle operators only face a 15 sen rise for diesel.
"The Government has decided to introduce a direct subsidy for these operators, making up 84% of diesel users, through a fleet card scheme," the statement stated.
"With the card they will be able to buy diesel at 15 sen less per litre than the new price.
"The Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry has sent out letters to the operators who qualify for this scheme."
The Prime Minister's Department also said the savings from the price increase would be used "to pay for development projects and improving the public transport system for the benefit of all people."
The decision to increase the price of fuel was to overcome the impact of rising crude oil prices and to curb the increase in subsidies paid by the Government.
The announcement was made in a statement from the Prime Minister's Department at 10.30pm yesterday.
The retail price for petroleum products is being raised because last year the amount of subsidy borne by the Government was RM7.41bil whereas tax exemption stood at RM7.85bil.
"The burden of subsidy and tax exemption borne by the Government from January to February this year was RM1.19bil and RM1.44bil respectively," the statement said.
The statement said that without the government's subsidy and tax exemption, the retail price of these products in March would have been higher.
Without the subsidy and tax exemption, the price of RON 97 in the peninsula would be RM2.46 a litre, RON 92 RM2.37 a litre, diesel RM1.98 a litre and LPG RM3.21 a kg.
In Sabah, RON 97 petrol without subsidy and tax exemption would be RM2.45 a litre, RON 92 RM2.37 a litre, diesel RM1.97 a litre and LPG RM3.35 a kg.
In Sarawak, the price of RON 97 petrol without subsidy and tax exemption would be RM2.45 a litre, RON 92 RM2.36 a litre, diesel RM1.97 a litre and LPG RM3.34 a kg.
"Although the Government is raising the price of petroleum products, diesel and LPG, the price of petrol and diesel in Malaysia is still cheaper than in other Asean countries except Brunei," the statement said.
