Petrol price down!

So the govt just reduced the petrol price per liter from RM2.70 to RM2.55 (RM0.15 reduction per liter).

Should we be happy over this price reduction?
  • I'm not because the price should never have gone up in the first place
  • The bowl of Pan Mee I eat for breakfast is not going to get cheaper
  • I'd be pissed if this price reduction was to win voters for the upcoming election
  • Chain effect of hike made all cost of living increase, but these costs will not be lower now that we have a 15 sen reduction
Point to ponder:
  1. If petrol gets a further reduction to RM2.00 a liter, will our standard of living adjust with it?
