Even the Government is so SLOW to Cut PRICES...

So WHAT if the Gov't cuts petrol, diesel prices by 6.1%? as reported in this malaysiakini article.
Many will consider this too little, too late as prices have already been raised by the private sector and will never come down to past levels.
Even the public transport now charges 30% more and together with a 20 to 30% increase in hawker fares, the ordinary folks now have to scrape to make ends meet.
Don't expect those petty traders to reduce their prices as the government did all of them a huge favour with the steep petrol hikes.
