There is about 40.6% increase in petrol price in Malaysia and it will take effect in less than 4 hours from now. There is no alert in local newspaper as they mention that they are still negotiating on price hike by this August. I have double check again from Malaysiakini and Thestar website and it is true.
The price hike on both diesel and petrol. Try to get your vehicle fill before midnight. My car is 72 liter and it is half full now. If I go and fill it up, I could save
Petrol hike = $0.78
Petrol need to fill up = 72/2 = 36 liters (half tank)
Total saved = $0.78 * 36 = $28.08 (That is US$8.75)
If the crowd never low, then I might give up to fill up and consider I have lost about $9 compared to those who rushed to fill petrol today.
