This happen?

Dateline 2022-04-26, FMT:

The government is likely to introduce a targeted fuel subsidy mechanism, especially for the lower income group, to cushion the impact of rising crude oil prices.

Economic affairs minister Mustapa Mohamed said the government was still working on a suitable structure and expected it to be completed soon.

He also noted that the finance ministry was currently looking at whether the government was able to bear the subsidy as prices for RON95 petrol and diesel remained for the time being.
