Fuel down by 15sen – RM2.00 per liter now!
Petrol, Diesel Prices Down 15 Sen A Litre Tuesday
KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 17 (Bernama) — Petrol and diesel will be sold 15 sen cheaper Tuesday following the government’s decision to lower fuel prices in tandem with the downward trend of global oil prices.
The pump price of RON97 petrol will be RM2 a litre from RM2.15 while the retail price of RON92 petrol and diesel is RM1.90 a litre, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said in a statement Monday.
He said this is the fifth downward revision since August in honouring the government’s promise to the people to lower fuel prices if oil prices dwindled in the world market.
Najib hoped traders would also lower prices of goods and services following the reduction in fuel prices to enable the people to reap the full benefits of cheaper fuel.
The people should continue to use petrol and diesel sparingly despite the lower price in line with the government’s efficient energy consumption plan, said Najib, who is also Finance Minister.

Abdullah Wants Prices Of Goods To Go Down
TASHKENT, Nov 17 (Bernama) — Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi wants traders to reduce their prices of goods so that consumers can enjoy the benefit of cheaper petrol and diesel in the country.
The prime minister said the problem was that prices of most goods had yet to go down despite the drop in fuel prices in the country for the fifth time, with the latest starting Tuesday.
“When the fuel prices went down, the prices of goods have not gone down as well. This is what I don’t like to hear,” Abdullah who is on the second day of his four-day official visit to Uzbekistan told Malaysian journalists here.
He said the traders were only interested in making a big profit, thus burdening the people.
The pump price of petrol will be RM2 a litre starting tomorrow, less 15 sen, while diesel will be RM1.90 per litre.
Abdullah said the government kept its word by reducing the pump prices following the downward trend of global oil prices.
However, the government was always at the losing end as people would still be angry with the government when the pump prices went down because the prices of goods did not go down as well, he added.
Abdullah said the people should not blame the government all the time as they, as consumers, had a role to play too in checking rising prices of goods.
“I am glad to hear that some non-governmental organisations plan to boycott some business premises for not reducing their prices,” he said.
Abdullah hoped that consumer associations could enlighten the business associations on the plight of the people through discussions.

So now all others food and mamak and all have to reduce ?? No more excuses. Ppl increased petrol price then all increase immediately, but when come to decrease price on all the food, they take ages and probably will not decrease. Is this fair?
