Fuel prices in Malaysia have increased in recent months. In September 2016, RON 95 was RM1.70 per litre, with increases of 10 sen and 15 sen imposed in October and November respectively. It was then reduced by a paltry 5 sen in December, ending the year at RM1.90.
Unfortunately, fuel prices for January 2017 have gone up significantly, where -
1. RON 95 is priced at RM2.10 per litre, up 20 sen compared to December 2016;
2. RON 97 is up 15 sen to RM2.40 per litre;
3. diesel is more expensive by 20 sen to RM2.05 per litre; and
4. Euro 5 diesel will cost 20 sen more, at RM2.15 per litre.
The children of ordinary Umno/BN supporters should look no further than their parents when spiralling cost of living drives them out into the streets.
