FUEL Prices to Come Down just before PERMATANG PAUH Elections?

This would be a probable move by the BN to show that they can reduce fuel prices as it will counter the claim by Anwar that his government will reduce fuel prices when it comes to power.

Perhaps that is the message intended by this malaysiakini article:
"Koh: Adjust fuel prices twice a month"

My prediction is that the price for petrol will be reduced by at least 0.20sen a litre just before the PP elections.
Anyone can tell any good stories about improvements to public transport in their own areas? We took the bus in Vancouver and paid C$2.50 each for a trip that would cost less than RM2 in Malaysia. (From Gastown area to Granville Island).
The sign specified exact change but we did not know that it had to be in coins so the driver could not issue us tickets.
Instead he told us to just "get on" and advised us to get ready the proper fees for the next ride. Later on, another couple got on and they too got a free ride. I'm not certain about the legal implications of riding without paying for the ticket but it is not such a good idea.

If BeeNd govt really cut down the fuel price before the Permatang Pauh by election,
more voters in Permatang Pauh will vote for DSAI.
This is because it shows DSAI, Pakatan Raykat, and NGOs had successfully pressure the BeeNd govt to reduce the fuel price!

If BeeNd govt don't cut down the fuel price before the Permatang Pauh by election, also more voters will vote for DSAI because once Pakatan Rakyat take over the federal govt, Pakatan Rakyat govt will reduce the fuel price to RM2.00/liter!
Either way, the situation is in favor of DSAI!

Even Fuel price up before PP election, we PP people in Klang Valley will definitely go back to vote for Anwar. That's for SURE! We even provide lift for those who have no transport back!

people and azisirit
thanks for your comments.

It is good that PP folks in Klang valley are prepared to drive back to vote for AI.

Maybe save fuel costs and use the BN transport if that is available?

going by the current oil price of usd113/barrel, the best bn can do is to lower is to rm2.40/lit as compared to anwar's promised rm2.00/lit.

however, i don't think bodowi will lower the price before the pp election.
