Petrol Price Down, Petrol Rebate?

If you haven’t filled up your car at the nearest station, you should. Because you’ll be dancing and shaking your bonbons. The current market price as of 3rd December 2008 is RM 1.90 per liter. Below the initial price of RM 1.92.

However we missed out on the Petrol Rebate which can STILL be collected at your local post office. No one would say no to RM600.

If the government decides to put a brake on this, what’ll happens to the December road tax renewals? Should the government decline their rights to collect the rebate? Oh my, what a tight situation we have here.

Now for the sake of argument, those are tax payer money. And with the edgy economic crisis, cash is power. If we give the money to vehicle owners, the gov will have lesser money to spend. Likewise, vehicle owner’s neck. A classic case of “telan mati mak, luak mati bapak“.

Although I’d like to think the gov have alienated the rebate money, those money could be spent to cultivate our economy, especially the food sector. Hey, we all need to eat to live, and Halal food is where we can aim our guns at.

Speaking of food, why is it heavily priced? Blame the fuel hike? Not anymore. The gov should really investigate middle man and suppliers in great detail. They could be raking huge unseen profits.

Since petrol price fluctuates in accordance to world’s demand, I’ll let this slip and not blame the government but anticipate their next move.

ps: Dr Sarah (soon-to-be), I’m sorry for your loss. If you need database help, let me know.

pss: Megat, don’t quit. Your fight to change Malaysian’s way of thinking is nowhere to close to an end. In fact it’s just beginning.

psss: Nokia E71, Apple iPhone, Samsung Omnia or HTC Touch Duo? Battle of the PDA.. scrap! New 24″ LCD please.

  1. hehe…
    lucky eh, the fuel price is back to normal again…
    food price?! thats the question…
    “harga siling” maybe…

    psss: beli jer… huhuhu…

  2. pak lah already said the rebate will be continued…that was sometime ago..the fuel rebate was for the old price that the gov took out to prevent foreigners come here to malaysia and fill up their tanks with subsidize petrol price…if i’m not mistaken la

  3. Walaupun saya belum lagi menjadi pemilik kenderaan di Malaysia, tapi saya sangat kasihan melihat ayah saya menanggung 4 buah kereta yang mana 2 daripadanya more than 2.0.

    -Saya malu bila ada a few Russian friends asyik tanya pasal isu minyak kita yang kalau turun pun, sikit sangat dan masih tak cecah our expectation. Dan dia persoalankan, the rebate won’t be given for twice. So, why should we agree with the idea. It gives us no benefit. If it does, it’s only for a short term. Suka ria dengan duit tu, lepas tu habis (well, u know Malaysias…) Come to rationalize this, yep, it doesn’t.
    -Thanks Eddie for the offer! many2 thanks. my bro’s friend showed up just before u left the comment and he helped me out.
    -Your comment’s at Nadia’s is really something. Huhu. It triggered me to smile =p

  4. hurm.. minyak turun.. harga barang sama je…

    pasal rm600 tu, minyak dah turun, bubarkan je rm600 tu..

    yes yes yes.. aku sokong sgt ape yg Sarah atas ni cakap…

  5. 1 line changed your mood, p {text-align:justify}

    A cat can write that code (provided I move its toe)

    ps: I prefer left-aligned. Oh well, it does look neat now.

  6. How’s your blog? Still pulling your hair out?

    ps: It doesn’t hurt to make people smile when you can huh? Glad you could read the underlying words ๐Ÿ˜›

  7. Jap.. byk nye kete awak! Lebih 2.0 liter tak semesti nya lagi kuat makan minyak. Kereta saya 2.8 liter. Apabila atas highway, tak pernah kurang dari 140kmh. KL-Batu Pahat-KL, RM100 = 50 liter = 580km. Setaraf kerete biase. Bile traffic jam je, pedih skit.

    ps: Tiada niat utk berlagak atau tunjuk tere (drive laju) nak cerite je.

  8. itu semua kereta yg di bawah tanggungan ayah je. tu lah nasibnya memberi anak yg masih belajar pakai kereta. haha. nasib 2 lagi dah kerja ๐Ÿ˜› if im not mistaken, i read somewhere u love speeding/drifting. ok. no doubt. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    p/s: kalau kereta 2.0 and above disqualified for rebate, no?

  9. OH! You read me inside out. Got to learn to shave that habit, because I am environment frenzy, so I should act like one!

    Yes, 2.0 above doesn’t qualify for the rebate.

  10. aiyark… rugi laa macam ni.
    aku ingat depa ni salah bajed la kasik naik minyak.
    since lepas minyak turun pon.. rege barang makin
    naik ade ar.. tah ape kes? REASON? kene tanye ar
    sama pemborong + pembekal.

    Sipot…. live in KL is going much harder. I’ve struggle to
    survive. Giler~

    Kreugerยฎ

  11. Ah, do you think they will do that? The so called savings from oils subsidy.. what happened to the public transportation system?

    Expand economy is the least on their thought. Saving the stock market yes… because there are many fat cats to be saved.

  12. In US, they are paying for petrol price equivalent to RM1.74 per litre. This is becoming a joke. Come on, taxing rakyat when already they earn pure profit from no subsidy and sales? Joking…

  13. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: bengang gak aa kerajaan tak fikir betul2 sebelum naik duit minyak skang nih yang susah rakyat gak. minyak turun harga bas naik harga makanan naik..

    sape tak bengang..??

    weh btw camner nak ym ko eh aku ada benda skit nak tanya

  14. Oh yea, E71 or HTC Touch Duo.

    Samsung Omnia, many bad feedbacks, basically a pretty looking crap.

    iPhone, too expensive, limited functions, more for gaya lebih.

    E71 a bit ugly, screen tad bit too small for PDA phone, sms-ing is a pain in the ass.. but functions packed :up: Forget the look factor, get a Bluetooth keyboard.. you own the world? HAHA!

    HTC Touch Duo.. (or Dual?) – Hmm.. HTC make good phones, latest Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 the hardware made by HTC. Pretty phone, with more than enough functions, worth considering.

  15. Ask about what? How to justify? Faster teach! Making it default all post to be justified!

    ps: I talked about it leh… mentioned that I did one by one post ๐Ÿ˜›

  16. E71 is not bad looking. Downside small screen, small keyboard but longer batt life. Can install GPS too ๐Ÿ˜›

    Omnia & iPhone too pretty to lose. I’ll pull my goatie if I misplaced them. Besides, for that kind of money, I should just get a Netbook with usb GPS.

  17. Aku rasa bertuah bila minyak turun sikit sbb kerja aku pusing2 dengan kereta everyday, kadang2 sampai JB or Sg Petani. Bab rebet ntahlah, kalau nak bagi aku sapu tak bagi pun tak kisah. Mcm NH cakap buleh guna untuk benda lain like food. Aku sokong kau. Cuma yang pasti harga barang tak kan turun punya. Most of peniaga kat Pasar Borong Selayang yg aku tanya kata over head coz tinggi. Gila diorang ni.

    ps:apek yang jual sayur kat pasar aku tanya “minyak tulun apa pasai talak tulun harga”, dia jawab “lu tak belajar ekonomi mana lu tau ini hal”,
    pss: apek pun tau bab ekonomi gak ekk..

  18. erk!? bukan kah komen diatas sudah off topic!!??

    alhamdulillah, minyak petrol turun harga! terima kasih kerajaan malaysia (for the time being).

    huh terasa perbezaannya sejak minyak naik mendadak. sekurang-kurangnya keta aku dapat jalan jauh dan banyak melakukan pergerakan kesana kemari hoho. (penganggur la katakan :p )

  19. pda?
    go for HTC touch 3G!
    setback: no video call
    but data in 3G
    netbook ->best money can buy (but cannot fit in ur pocket)
    ps.: i’ll stick with my o2 atom black.

  20. hehe aku tak kira aku nak jugak..rebet tu nak wat bayar insuran kereta aku..mana aci org lain dpt …

    hehehe mintak2 lah buleh claim lagi..aku renew bulan depan nih weii

    jgn lah kena block plak
