The govt should know how to honour their own promises. The Sept has just started and people don't even have the chance the buy the petrol on RM1.75.
It will defeat the purpose of introducing RON95 ie: to save the people's expenses!

Fakta paling penting: Semenjak awal tahun 2009 ini, iaitu apabila ekonomi dunia semakin merudum, harga minyak dunia TIDAK PERNAH pun melepasi paras USD80 setong. Tertinggi yang pernah dicatatkan adalah pada 21 Ogos yang lalu, iaitu di paras USD75 setong.

Jadi dari mana datang nilai USD82.30 ini? Seseorang sila jelaskan kalau saya ada terlepas pandang apa-apa fakta.
