Review Oil Price for 1 year for what?

January 31, 2007

Najib: No cut in fuel prices yet

PUTRAJAYA: The Government does not plan to lower petrol prices just yet.

According to Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, the Government needed to monitor the world oil prices for at least one year before making any decision.

“We will review the oil price, but a review does not automatically mean that we will reduce the price. That decision will be for the Cabinet to make,” he told reporters after chairing the National Mineral Council meeting here yesterday.

Can you believe this? review for 1 year? Other countries already lowered their fuel price few times now, and Najib got the nerves to tell us this. Hey Batu Talam voters, how do you all feel now?

Did they review for 1 year before they decided to built the new RM400 million Istana Negara, or “lease” the luxury jet?

Abdullah only got this to say on this issue,

“It’s good to keep on monitoring prices,” he said.(via The Star)

What is so good about it? Its getting harder and harder for me to understand Abdullah, between us, one must be getting dumber!
