This week Malaysians were greeted with news of petrol pump prices finally going down 3 sen after seeing consecutive weeks of upward trend.
The most common complaint when prices keep inching upwards is that our country produces oil so it is our right to enjoy cheap petrol.
Is this really the case?
Political analyst Lim Sian See (LSS) sought to give Malaysians the big picture into how much or too little that we fork out for petrol.
In a recent posting on LSS Report LSS highlights four key points that Malaysians need to understand about our petrol prices.
Firstly, is that due to long term government subsidies, our petrol price is far behind the current inflation rate.
