Dateline 2020-04-18, FMT:

The country’s largest organisation of petrol station owners has warned of the likelihood of pumps running dry after the movement control order (MCO) expires unless the government temporarily stops the practice of setting weekly prices.

Many of the station owners would not have the funds to buy enough petrol and diesel to cater to the expected increase in demand, Petrol Dealers Association Malaysia (PDAM) president Khairul Annuar Abdul Aziz told FMT.
