The Petroleum Dealers Association of Malaysia (PDAM) is suggesting for the government to release the retail fuel prices to the association, two days before the weekly fuel prices are announced.
Its president Datuk Khairul Annuar said this is to allow petroleum dealers to bargain for a better price of fuel accordingly with the petroleum producers.
“We got this idea from our Moroccan counterparts during a conference with international petroleum dealers yesterday. We hope we can emulate their method.
“We can accept the system where the retail prices of petroleum and diesel is set every Wednesday. But, we hope we can get the information on the price change two days prior, which is on Monday.
