I asked the gas delivery guy why cooking gas price remained the same when petrol price had dropped significantly.

Instead, he advised that gas price will be going up soon.
True or not?

I paid RM27 for Shell (yellow cylinder) just 2 weeks ago, delivered to doorstep. Price of cooking gas have steadily and quietly risen over the past years. Petronas cylinder is less content (cheaper price?), if not mistaken.
Anyway, the fact remains, most won't argue with the gas delivery man when its arrived and just have to cough out whatever he says. We're all cornered man!.
This country is never short of controversy and redicule. :mad:

so i posted prematurely in the wrong thread - ie electricity traiff to fall 25%.
maybe i should count myself lucky for getting my supply at rm1cheaper than bslee. while everybody uses petrol, most dependency is indirect. every household uses cookign gas, and this dependency is direct. why do you think the char kway teow fella is keeping the price for his plate of chow at rm4?

Hey, maybe you should post the contact number of the gas delivery man here as you are getting shell gas at RM26 so the rest of us can benefit?

LPG gas a controlled item, no? But I'm sure the retailers are riding us all when they include the hidden delivery charges.. Different place, different price, lugging up 6 floors = another price, Nothing comes free. Gahmen No control or don't bother at all.
Piped in gas?.. I cringe when I think how my home water plumbing piping was installed and fitted by the developer. Can't last 10 years. Ptui!.. :mad:
