In the evening, SMSs were flying around from friends regarding imminent increase in petrol and diesel prices. Yes, it was confirmed. Petrol price has increased RM0.78 per litre to RM2.70/Litre, Diesel added RM 1.00 per litre at RM2.58 / Litre.
The effect is far reaching. Transporters, bus operators are sounding their trumpets of 100 % increase in their charges and fare. It means every item on our dining table will cost more.
For me alone, my personal petrol expenses will increase by RM 200.00 based on four fillings per month. For my lorry, it will cost RM 700.00 per month.
The cost of my goods will be increased due to expected rise in transport charges.
As for the petrol station owners, their financial burden is heavier. For every tanker load of petrol of 25,000 litres, they have to pay extra RM19,500.00. And for diesel, it is RM25,000.00 per load. Oil companies do not give credit. You can see more stations reluctant to accept credit cards. So you may see more stations telling you the credit card service is offline.....
We have to change our lifestyle. It is more costly to drive now. Be prudent and thrift. Even eating out is expensive. My driver just complained to me that a piece of dosei costing RM0.80 now is being charged at RM1.60.....
More bad news are coming..... of costlier living!
的确正确。在傍晚五点的时候，首相就宣布从子夜开始，汽油价格调高 RM0.78，每公升新价为RM2.70；柴油价格上调 RM1.00，新价为每公升 RM2.58.
对我来说，个人的每个月汽车用油，将增加 RM200.00. 我公司的罗里，每个月的柴油费用，也相应的增加了 RM700.00.
对于经营汽油站的商家，他们的经济负担将会加重。每一油罐车的汽油，容量二万五千公升，将需多付 RM19,500.00, 而柴油则需多付 RM25,000.00. 油公司是没有给帐期的。所以，顾客用信用卡付账，会使他们很吃力。以后会常看到油站贴上"信用卡线路故障”。
