Malaysia Petrol Price Will Rise 15 cents per liter

Malaysia government will cut the subsidy budget and will increase the petrol price by 15 cents from the current price (RM1.80 per liter) for RON95. Not only that, our petrol price will hike in schedule. These are our forecast petrol price in between 2011-2015.


* Current 2010 petrol price – RM1.80 per liter for RON95
* 3rd quarter of 2010 petrol price hike – RM1.95 per liter
* 2011 petrol price – RM2.16/liter
* 2012 petrol price – RM2.20/liter
* 2013 petrol price – RM2.34/liter
* 2014 petrol price – RM2.52/liter
* 2015 petrol price – RM2.60/liter

So, basically, these are just the proposed hikes for RON95 only. RON97 was not mentioned at all. Once petrol price hike, everything will be more and more expensive. Manufacturing company & transportation will take this advantage to increase the price. Boss don’t want to increase the salary, end up workers suffer the most. People with higher salary can pay for this price hike but for that lower income group, they will definitely feel the pinch.

What Do You Think About Malaysia Fuel Price by Car Size?

Started from 1st May 2010, certain group of Malaysians who drive higher capacity engine and non-citizens will have to pay different fuel prices as they will not be eligible for subsidized petrol anymore. As I known, our government currently subsidized RM0.30 for RON 95. The original price of RON 95 is RM2.10.


Do You Think New Fuel Subsidy System Workable?

Our government has never fail to invent new system. But, most of the time all those new system that implemented never satisfies us as we have already adopted ourselves in the “comfort zone” of cheap. For me, it’s better to do some feasibility study and set the concrete rules and procedures before making any final judgment.

Secondly, it’s not fair enough to implement petrol price with accordance to engine capacity! This is because there are still a lot of rich people driving old and small cars. So, this may not prevent rich people from enjoying the subsidy too.

Thirdly, it is totally ridiculous to implement this new fuel subsidy system. How are they going to determine who is the rich and who is the poor. What about the middle class people who are earning RM2,500 monthly, paying taxes yearly but driving a 2000cc car?

Fourthly, there may have smart people who will drive a low engine capacity car like perodua kancil to fill up their fuel and go back to transfer it to their higher engine capacity car like BMW via a hose. So, could you imagine how danger of it and it may increase the number of fire accident cases by just saving their fuel cost.

We as a Malaysian citizen cannot do anything if government still insists public to follow their decision. So, as a pre-preparation, people should try to find alternative to improve their income and not just blame this and that.
