Below are the common statement that always we heard.

1. Increasing of petrol price still low compared with other country.

2. Increasing of petrol price do not increase the burden of people ?

3. Government promised that there will not be any petrol prices increased anymore.

We all know that fuel price are kept increasing and government petrol subsidy will be cut-off to help the country economy.

Well, it's fair enough...but the thing that doesn't make sense is government sector worker salary had been increased and will be increase after this...the private sector worker salary had never been increased and government doesn't concern about their salary although this private sector are the contributor for the Malaysia income...government sector only involve in services such as collecting taxes...

It seem that, government had no problem to increase their employee salary and they will never had any problem with the fuel price...the private sector worker will keep dying under the fuel and goods price that keep increasing day to day....

So, is it the fuel price increment are fair to everyone...?
