RON 97 petrol is reduced by 15sen to RM2.30; RON 92 petrol is reduced by 10sen to RM2.20; and diesel is reduced by 20sen to RM2.20.

This was announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi today, reports Malaysiakini - Gov't cuts petrol and diesel prices.

The cut in fuel prices, the third time in as many months was aimed at tracking falling world oil prices and curbing rising inflation in the country, said Abdullah.

"The government decided to speed up the reduction in retail prices so that the people can enjoy the benefit sooner," Abdullah said in a statement issued this afternoon.

Since hiking prices by 41 per cent in June, the government has cut fuel price once in August and the second time in September.

It is brainless to increase the petrol price by a whopping 70 cents to RM2.70 and subsequently to reduce it by 15 cents, then 10 cents and now another 15 cents to RM2.30!The damage has been done and no amount of reduction by 10 cents or 15 cents in future will really help the poor!The increase in prices at the retail level will continue unabated.
Do the brainless policy makers really expect the traders and retailers and stall owners to reduce their prices?No way.In fact I paid 10cents more for my daily cup of tea this morning!

Dah turun tu kira nasib baiklah, kalau tak turun langsung lagi parah nanti. Ni lah jenis manusia tak reti nak bersyukur, sekurang2nya kerajaan tetap melakukan sesuatu. Mari berharap penurunan harga ni akan berlaku lagi dalam masa terdekat.

Tak payahlah kita nak gaduh-gaduh kat sini.. Dah harga minyak diturunkan, bersyukur saja lah. Walaupun penurunan hanya 15 sen, sekurang-kurangnya turun juga daripada tak turun langsung. Bagi saya penurunan walau hanya 15 sen, ia tetap nikmat dan wajiblah kita mensyukuri...

ye...apa kerajaan buat semua brainless kan? apa semua anwar buat n tipu semua bijak bistari...
mmg lah turun nampak turun sikit2 tapi total nye dah 40 sen kan?? semua org pun skrg baya 2.30..klau la kau tu yg perintah..aku rasa lagi kucar kacir adalah.

mmg lah aku akui gak kerajaan patut carik alternatif utk overcome the problem beyond. tapi kena lah faham...action yg diorg amik ni pun bukanlah tahap brainless mcm kau kata tu..fikir lah jugak subsidi..klau bg subsidi yg terlampau n sampai kerajaan x dek simpanan..mcmana tu? nanti klau banjir..tsunami ke..tak pun kegawatan ekonomi cam skrg..

klau tak dek simpanan mcmana kerajaan nak bagi pertolongan cemas utk mangsa banjir n tsunami tu? nak atasi kegawtan ekonomi pun mesti ada simpanan dlm negara yg byk tau..

kita ni org biasa mmg lah tak terasa dlm semua permasalahan tu..sbb kita ni ibarat anak2...mak bapak yg urusan...yg kita tau kita tak dek problem..mcm kita dapat duit poket skolah kurang dr mak bapak kita..merajuk..tak pun kita pening lah sbb dapat duit sket.pening kita pening lg diorg.

pening lalat ke..pening dinosaur ke..semua tu kan diorg yg tanggung...
