And the problem of hidden fuel taxes is?
Dateline 2015-01-30, Malay Mail Online:
Malaysians have unknowingly paid more than RM1 billion in taxes to Putrajaya over the past two months as pump prices remain on a controlled float, an opposition lawmaker claimed today.
PKR’s Pandan MP Rafizi Ramli alleged that road users across the country have been paying above market price for the commodity, even after the complete removal of subsidies, due to the plunge in global crude oil prices.
“Because the rakyat continue to pay higher than market price, Barisan Nasional received a windfall by collecting petrol tax without announcing it to the rakyat,” he said in a statement, referring to the ruling coalition.
“For the month of January 2015, the rakyat paid RM307 million in petrol taxes for RON95 and RM209 million for diesel,” he added.
