If we need to wait until end of the year for the price to remain, how can they review the price at every month to come as promised? What a stupid statement....

Pray that oil prices stay low, says PMPUTRAJAYA: Petrol pump prices will be reviewed again on Oct 1 and if the present trend of crude oil prices continues consumers can expect some good news.
“So, please pray that the fuel prices won’t climb again or better yet, for it to drop further,” said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
Abdullah said that if world market prices for fuel remained stable at US$109 for the rest of the year, Malaysians might even enjoy another 15 sen drop below the current rate of RM2.55.
“We will have to wait until the pump prices are revised come Oct 1 or by the middle of that month under our calculation formula.
“If world prices remain at US$109 per barrel until the end of the year, we can reduce prices by another 15 sen,” he said here yesterday.
However, he warned that prices could also go up if the crude oil prices increase.
On the ringgit weakening against the US dollar, Abdullah said the Government would not intervene.
“The value has dropped but not to a level that is too drastic or worrying.”
