From the Star – Stop your Bullying, Petrol Dealers tell Oil Firms


You know that monger who always used to threaten you for your lunch money (y’know, the one who’s a meaner version of Buford). Well it seems like he grew up, put on a Spark Manshop suit, learned to read, and is still threatening the small kids on the block. And the kids still tattle to the teacher.

KUALA LUMPUR: Petrol dealers claim they are being “bullied” by the oil companies and want the Govern­ment to intervene to safeguard their interests.

Petrol Dealers Association of Malaysia (PDAM) president Datuk Hashim Othman said among the problems faced by petrol stations were high rentals and conversion of sole proprietorships to private limited companies.

“We only have the Government to back us up. If the oil companies need us, they call us partners. When they want something, they shove it down our throats,” he claimed.
