I hadn't expected gas price in Malaysia to increase.. I don't know.. I would've thought that being a net exporter of oil, higher oil prices meant more money! Hmm.. must be some other thing that I'm missing... should have paid more attention in economics classes!! Or maybe political science!
A friend sent me this link .. might this shed some light? http://humblevoice.blogspot.com/2008/06/56-billion-ringgit-question.html
