So the 40% ++ increment on the fuel price is of course a culture shock to everybody.
Hey, you know what, I support the abolishment of the fuel subsidy (it's not healthy for economy) - with some BUT
1) But, did government really did what they promise since the last price increase - i.e. make use of the money saved from subsidy to benefit the citizen
2) BUT, did government really improve the public transport system since last price increase? Car is a necessity in Malaysia, NOT luxury
3) BUT, did government list out the plan to make use of the money saved from subsidy, at least for this time? No, they didn't really do. If not, the Malaysian citizen are very interested to know what's government's plan - especially where would the money be spent.
Else, there's no point raising the price, at the same time asking the citizen to "change your lifestyle"
