The government has not revoked the order on ceiling retail prices of petrol and diesel as reported, said Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Alexander Nanta Linggi.

As such, he hoped the public would not make misleading statements about the matter as this could give rise to misunderstandings.

“No no no. Don’t be misled. Don’t misunderstand it. We have not removed the so-called ceiling price, it is the same,” he told a press conference after a survey of barber shops, hair and beauty salons at a mall here, following the government’s decision to allow the sector to resume operations today.
