The price to drive

I was browsing through the comics newspaper online a while ago when I stumbled a piece of worrying news. No, I was not referring to the list of sex offenders names being released, though I have some reservations regarding that. I am referring to the latest crude oil price which just hit a record high of US$85 per barrel.

If you remember, the last increase in petrol price of RM0.30 happened in late February 2006 when the crude oil price was hovering around US$60 per barrel. It caused much uproar amongst many Malaysians with some badly hit people doing a big demonstration made themselves heard around KLCC area. Yes, it did happened, just not reported in the news.

Anyway, the price of crude oil has now soared to US$85, which is a 41.6% increase from US$60 per barrel; the price of crude oil during the last increase in petrol price in Malaysia. Oliver Jakob, managing director of Petromatrix, a consultancy firm in Switzerland was quoted
here; saying that US$90 per barrel is “within easy reach”.

Yes, our wonderful government is saying that there will be no further increase in petrol price this year. But you and I are all painfully aware that the lifespan of “this year” is fast running out. And let’s be honest with ourselves, if the election is not on its way, we may well be paying RM2.50++ per litre of petrol already. The question is then of course… what will happen after the election?
Having said that, I am dead sure that even if petrol price increases to as high as RM3 per litre, all we Malaysians will do is start f**king the government in blogs and complain about everything under the sky in our regular mamak gatherings. Maybe some will make themselves heard and seen again in KLCC. But before you know it, we will all be ordering the new Camry-s and Civic-s and play our part in contributing to traffic jam. Don’t you think so?

But you know what really bothers me? It is the usage of the savings arising from the cut in petrol subsidy which ticks me. One I could think of right now is to send a Malaysian as tourist to space. Oh, did you read the news today? Our supposedly Malaysian first astronaut has successful conducted his first space experiment…
by spinning a top (“gasing”) in space.

Hey… you and I may find it stupid, but a lot of Malaysians out there are actually quite proud it. But you know the irony of it? It is the same bunch of Malaysians who take much pride in having that dude in space and having the “gasing” played in space that will feel the pinch most should there be a price increase in petrol price. Don’t you think so?

For those people residing overseas, don’t you dare say that petrol price will still be cheap if it hit RM3 per litre here in Malaysia. Yes, it may be US$0.86 per litre (RM3) but when you consider that the average income per capita in Malaysia is US$496 per month as at 2006 (source:
Malaysian National Budget Speech 2008), petrol is freaking expensive.

Well, what am I getting at here? With the second dude also heading to space in the near future; all I can say is… brace yourself for the inevitable.

P/S: I have to say it… the experiment performed by our space tourist is just so damn fu*ked up.
P/S/S: Anyone upgrading their car?

Yeah... i think the price will increase mostly after next year or after the election.. time to use back bicycle!!! kekekek..

vincent said...

Since you very correctly pointed out the rise in global crude oil price, as in the price of crude oil is same all over the world, then surely the income per capita is irrelevant?

You may be in US or Burma with an average income per capita miles apart, but the price of crude oil is the same, no?

For those who do not know...the news of our space tourist being sent up to do a few minor tricks and treats, to appease those numpty policitians has also been reported in the BBC last week. Yes, what failed to make it into our readings in Malaysia has been reported as a deal struck between our Malaysian govt and the Russian for US$25 million for their effort to send our goon up in space, and also a US$600 million to buy 19 aircraft jets.

There you go...I very much doubt the govt has much left to subsidise the common rakyat

whisperingshout said...

Vincent, it all boils down to affordability. Simply said, because of the difference, petrol is easily affordable for the americans but not the burmese.

Gasing without gravity need to test??? How come the self proclaimed 2020 visionaries are not embarrassed at all?

kyh said...

Hmm with all the hoohaas around the price of oil all these times, I dont seem to bother about it bcos it doesnt bother me for the time being. :P

Care to elaborate more on the "fcked up" experiment done by our dear astronaut?

And btw, how did u put the disclaimer "The author cannot be held responsible for any comments or trackbacks that may deem as sensitive or controversial." on ur comments page?

Sunshine said...

gosh... i hope i get a big increament :(

Zaty said...

well, considering it's for a scientific experiment (or scientific proof?) im not (that) angry at him for testing a gasing in space... but it does make you wonder a bit tho.

oil prices increasing by more than 40%?? damn!.. we're gonna see a major increase in prices of every darn thing then. brilliant.

vincent said...

Actually, you can make noise about spinning a gasing in space, but do you know what actually happens when you do that experiment? Not the slightest bit curious?


Back to the oil issue. It does NOT depend on affordability. It depends on refining costs and how much each individual government or company is prepared to subsidise.

You are free to complain about the way the government goes about spending the money they saved by slashing the subsidies.

But don't talk about the prices of gasoline elsewhere when you do not know how the pricing mechanism and subsidy scheme works.

conan_cat said...

oh yeah, that experiment is so darn fucked up. i can't help but laugh when i read the news, using so much money to send him up just to spin a gasing, and yeah our PM promised that our space tourist will play batu seremban there too.

and ouch that really hurts, USD$85 per barrel is really, really painful @__o my god... perhaps that will really make people stop driving for once and public transports will be overhelmed. but then, public transport in msia?? do they exist?

kat said...

Looks like the grass is really greener here.. or should I say, the oil is blacker/oilier?? :D
You wanna come here instead? *grin*

Freethinker said...

Problem is their "excuse" is the "gasing" shit inspires school children..... kids.... it's really trying to create artificial "Malaysia" Boleh spirit....

At the end of the day, only the kids were conned.. while the tax payers end up being the suckers.

Sending the next to the space again at the expense of tax payers really should have the papers debate the merit on it, it aint cheap..

Well, I guess even the space man is pissed he has to do some gasing in space than something he truly believe is fun

F.O.N @ frostee said...

It would sure be a big bite off my pocket.

UPgrading car? HAha! You kidding right?

Vincent: Time for some prozac dude. Calm down.

Helen said...

I don't need to look into the crystal ball to predict the oil price is going up.....

Let's hope the kelapa sawit for replacement fuel is going to take off. Any serious funding to do more experiments? Nope, not in space... in our good old ladang kelapa sawit.

Vincent, you are right, it does NOT depend on affordability. But, it always ended up with...whether the people can afford it.

One country can subsidies 99%, yet still meaningless if the people cannot afford it. That is where the income per capita comes into the picture.

AngryYoungChild said...

We shall all ride bicycle, roller blade, skateboard, walk, use horse, use cow, use everything that doesnt involve petrol to go places in the future. Horses are pretty cool btw. =p

And a gasing? ...-______________- *dies*

zewt said...

kukujiaoman - it good actually if everyone uses the bicycle... help reduce global warming... haha.

vincent - hi and welcome. i have to go with whisperingshout, it's about affordability and not price. yes, i do not know how does the pricing mechanism works. but like i said... i am not concern about the price of the petrol... i am concern about the usage of the savings arising from the cut in subsidy. that's the whole point of my blog actually.

anon aka Michelle K - hi michelle. i think what you mentioned is in our mind without you saying it. we have become the world's laughing stock.

whisperingshout - calm down bro... i will go with you on affordability. it's also about the usage of the savings. and yes, the gasing test is just ridiculous and it appears that our vision lies with this gasing... hopeless.

kyh - you can go into your settings... comments and there is an option there... cool eh? as for fucked up experiments... sigh, wait till the paper reports more.

sunshine - very hopeful you are...

zewt said...

Zaty - let's be honest... what kinda experiment can he possibly perform in space??? yeah, those sharks are ready to make a kill when the petrol price increases.

conan_cat - they exist... non-existent kinda exist... i am talking crap... just too fed up with what's happening... sigh.

kat - there is an opening for a job there actually... hmmmm...

freethinker - if the spaceman have honour... he should have stamp a mark and admit that he is merely a tourist and not trying to fit in some gasing trick and call it experiment.

FON @ frostee - yeah man... he is way too hot at the moment. you damn syiok la... all the way in DC.

Helen - it works... but it's very pollutant concentrated... so not going to happen.

AngryYoungChild - i dont mind a horse really. and that is not cheap u know...

Cocka Doodle said...

On hindsight, fuel price increase is a blesing. Otherwise, every ah Ther, ah Kow can afford a car and contribute to the ever-worsening traffic woes and pollution.
Each time the Ah Beng rev his Evo-wannabe, I laugh to myself.

It doesn't matter. What goes around, comes around. Fuel price increases, we'll increase price of services and goods. Working class...poe choong! Who ask you ppl to vote in the wrong gomen that anyhow spend money?

LaSh said...

zewt.

so u mean, the price of petrol isn't yet at RM3? how much is it?

anyway, i'll say it! PETROL IS SO CHEAP IN MALAYSIA! :D

even if it gets to RM3.

I'm paying Rs 41.50, that's US$ 1.35 How bout that? And we're no better than Malaysians with our lifestyle! I can assure you.

I've been holding my plans over the past year to tune my car, because of the actual price of petrol, tuning means more petrol consumption, which means paying more at the station, which i can't for the time being, with prices going up every 3 months. pft.

btw, did u get my mail bout KPMG thingy?

Michael Song said...

for election, apa pun boleh janji mar... after election, not only petrol, uncle sam will charge higher too... if they sent me to space, i teach other crew play congkak... negaraku *shaking head*

cibol said...

I better stick to dad's idea of having just a savvy then. with me just started working, I don't think I can afford to fill in the tank of any imported cars. maybe it's better to just use public transport to go anywhere here in my place but I bet the fares will be up in no time also.

Anonymous said...

Look, it all boils down to your votes. Really, just vote the ruling party out. Some said their 1 vote doesn't make a difference. Then stop complaining when the present ruling party decides to raise petrol prices by another 30 sen. Or use your money to send a space tourist all for the pride of a race masked under the banner of a nation.

Every vote matters. It will send a message across. Also, if you like to walk the talk in other ways, come join the marching party in Dataran Merdeka on 10 Nov 2008 at 3pm. A memorandum will be submitted to the Agong to seek for a free and fair election.

Only you can make the difference. If you want to rely on others, then why don't you give up your jobs and wait for kindness of others to provide for your needs? Even you don't believe that so why say your vote matters not?

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

sigh..time to seek greener pastures d la at this rate its going..at 90 bucks..its time for another 30-40 cents increase?

Dancing Queen said...

We were over in Brunei 2 days ago. Petrol there is cheaper than mineral water but as of Oct 1, they limit you to BND10 max per car per station. There goes our plan to get a full tank of petrol before coming back.

So if Brunei is setting a limit, how much do you think the price increase would be for Malaysia?

Hor ny Ang Moh said...

All my recent post is about life getting very hard! From the comment on the entries it seem I am no the only one faceing a difficult life! So it seem that I will 'down grade' sooner then expected! Like eg powered 4 wheel to 2 wheel the to self-powered 2 wheel & maybe no wheel at all! Have a nice day!

lynnx01 said...

Whether or not the oil price increase, the govt would still increase our petrol price. The time when the world's oil price increase, our petrol price increased. Then at one time, the oil price actually dropped quite a lot. But our petrol price still remain high. Actually, I just don't understand. We are the ones having the oil. The increase should benefit us. Instead, we sell the petrol off at high price, then buy lousier petrol from Arab that side and charge so high to our own people. Sigh!

Angie Tan said...

the price will continue to rise and no doubt that the govt will raise the price again, irregardless of whether elections are called or not. the govt will provide their own "spin" but with the crude oil prices spiraling upwards, no doubt this will be the basis for the price increase.

i just wish that we have access to alternative sources of energy. but we all know what happens to those kind of research *sigh*...

who killed the electric car?

PurpLe~MuShRooM said...

What the F?? Spent our money up in space and spun a top?? Did he TFK to prove that sperms can be shoot far far away in space and still alive? Blardy!!!

F.O.N @ frostee said...

zewt: DC is fine. A good change from the normal office atmosphere, so am not complaining. HEheh!

Oh... Mr Bush sends his regards to ya. He told me that he shares the same view about spinning tops in zero gravity. Hehehe!

Sunflower said...

Did you read what the Science & Technology Minister said?

"We want our space programme to have a new shift. With this, I believe we are making our journey into a new era that will make us a more prosperous nation."

Source: The Star

I am wondering how spending all this money sending "flight participants" into space is going to help us become more prosperous. Maybe the Minister could explain it to me, since doubtless I am missing something here.

Huei said...

so ironic..after erection..everything will rise! hahahahha

damn..our gomen is so damn f*cked up! PROUD about that guy who went to space? damn..total waste of money!

sharlydia said...

I think I just gotta start utilising the free shuttle service provided by my condo goin to 1U, Ikano & the Curve since my office is next to 1U...

Regarding our deary first astronaut, I soooooo agree with u! I have exactly the same thinking and I was talking to my hubby about how "idiotic" it was to spend so much to send someone to the space as tourist! But he thought it was probably among the only good thing our Pak PM has done so far...haha, how sarcastic!

Mcmercedez said...

I strongly will not trust when the govt said that they will not increase the price of the petrol.. Those are a bunch of BULLSHIT!!! Everytime say the country got no money to subsidise.. Then where the hell the money goes to? Where does our taxes go?

To the development of the country? (did you see anything?) To help the citizens (yah.. by further burden the people)? CRAP!!! The money was spent like sending a jerk to space with no objective or whatsoever... Spinning a top in space and do stunts in space? Huh.. That shows how stupid our govt and the idiot in space are..

All I can say is that its one big F****D UP!!!! country...

yappy said...

Malaysians can afford to buy a car but very soon cannot afford to pay for petrol, toll and parking.

But we can all look up to Space.

Caramel M said...

Damn.. was hoping to watch a USD 25 million fireworks show the other day but unfortunately he made it to the ISS and is now making Malaysia a mockery of the world by spinning a bloody gasing. What next? making dodol in space? Ooo.. no prize for guessing who's going to be made the first Datuk or maybe even Tan Sri one day just for being a tourist...

I would gladly ride a bicycle but I'd rather die of natural causes. One space flight participant vs Cleaning up crime and upgrading the roads.. Guess it was a no brainer for the govt.

SWei said...

My tuition teacher was just talking about it yesterday during class! The tax you pay and my parents pay are being wasted on plain useless stuff.

All the nonsense about cosmonaut and other crap. PFFT. Malaysians just don't want to admit that the dude's just a space tourist who's gonna conduct some HUGE experiment by playing bloody gasing in space. =.= Lameness! "Muka tembok" laaaa those people.

The more we pay, the more those people use it on more brainless stuff. Jeez. It gets my blood boiling every time screwed up things like these happen.

Yet again, what can we do? We are the helpless ones here considering they're the ones with the higher position. =.=

its inevitable that those marder farkers in bn will push for another price hike or otherwise how is farklah going to finance another corridor in sarawak...

what is it called? recorda? ahemmm sound like a blardie cough drop to me

bongkersz said...

Seems like malaysian farking care about the price of the oil rather than how our government spent the promised RM4.4 billion saving from oil subsidy. Yes, it's RM4.4 billion or RM4400 million!!! Now, they said the money will be used for public transportation improvements, where?? Anything new? Less congested now? Fark it! And, the price of petrol was raised 30 cent and that was before the ringgit strengthened against the US dollar, the USD was 3.7 then. Now it is 3.68 and bank negara said that its going to strenghten more against USD.

Technically speaking, the total saving is actually more than 4.4 billion. so, if there is no more 4.4billion for the transport industry, at least there should be 2 billion or 1. Oh.. for the space tourist-s(they are going to send another one up), repairs of what shitty government buildings, merdeka celebration (fuiyoh.. purposely flew in the car for Mr. Abdullah Badawi to impersonate Y.M Tunku Abdul Rahman.. ceshh....) Biar bergaya asal papa, that's apt to describe what our ministers think. Guys, farking utilise your vote lah! Sick of everyone that is saying his/her 1 vote doesn't make a difference. It does ok.. when everyone thinks it matters..

Yes, you are right. No price increase of petrol this year, but the price will be soaring high next year. DAMN!

Maybe we should opt for bicycles. Save fuel and can exercise. I calculated I just need to leave home at 5am and can reach at 9am with 21km of distance :D

Maybe we should seriously considered migrating or working overseas...sigh...

P/S/S Not upgrading my 14 years old car. Wukakaka

anigma said...

I was very disturbed when they said wanna play batu seremban and trying to do teh tarik in space. I have never heard such fucked up ideas in my entire meaningless life.

ehon said...

the malaysian government should start looking into improving the public transport so everyone can take the public transport instead of driving. solve the problem and cut down green house gases emition!

bensiu said...

The price of oil has to be cheaper..to compensate for the tolls that we need to pay everytime we want to so called use the "Express Way".. Yes, oil prices overseas are much more expensive because I am not sure the government subsidies it but they have less toll to cross...Just take the example in Thailand... petrol is more expensive BUT from south to north, you can use their roads and dont pay a single cent and I mean good paved roads...

I thought you r kidding about the gasing show... I read from Asia News magazine that a Malaysian Singh guy is going to space on medical research... And I thought finally some smart fella....

penang-kia said...

After all the hoohaa that he is a astronaut..lah or cosmonaut..lah.
Now he is telling us he is a can..naut playing gasing and it would not stop spinning just like our MSM.

As for the price of gasoline we are totally screwed!!!

Angrymanfrom Taiwan said...

Cut all subsidies on the price of petrol and let it float at the real price per gallon. This should have the effect of cutting all the excess traffic off the roads and will stop families earning RM800 a month from keeping 3 cars at home; one for each family member! This should also discourage the fucking mat rempit from tearing around town all night. People should be taken off those bloody motorbikes and put into air-con buses instead. With the savings from the reduction of subisidies, invest in the public transport system, make the LRT actually go to places that people live instead of just going to useless tourist sites, buy news buses and better bus shelters. Sell off Proton and their useless junk piles to VW and let them do whatever they want with it. Malaysias automobile programme is non sustainable in the long term and the number of cars has to come down and lazy fat malaysians have to learn to stop driving up the doorstep of everywhere they go and illegally parking if there is no parking space and start thinking about doing some walking.

yea...seems like everything is increasing in price..and nothing seesm to be decreasing!

if petrol increse, any other things also will increase because they need 'petrol' to transport stuff, etc!

Rightly said there....

erection usually means "things" are actually rising :P yup yup! :D

It is at times like this that I am glad I only drive a small car. Looks like my latest increment may be eaten up by the eventual rise in petrol prices - it's gonna happen sooner or later what...

zewt said...

cocka doodle - i doubt it, history has shown that fuel price will only create a tempt uproar... at the end of the day, we all will still be driving. yeah man... we need to poe choong.

LaSh - oh yeah, it's not RM3 yet, it's RM1.93 now and it's already quite unaffordable to a lot of ppl. yeah, thanks for the mail. i got it. :)

Michael Song - biasalah... we all mudah lupa mah.

chingy said...

OMG!
I so agree with you!

Wasting money sending space TOURISTS to space, and not spending the taxpayer's money for the benefits of all.

There are so many people out there that need help and yet, all they want is publicity.

Stupid.

rational thinker said...

it's basic economics though. there's no way our govt can keep on subsidizing our petrol. it's about time that us, as the final consumers to realign our lives for the higher petrol prices. i think malaysians probably have one of the highest vehicle per capita in the world, because of our subsidized fuel.

with that said, there s a lot of repercussion in other areas - inflation, cost of living, food, logistics etc. it's also time for govt to clean its act, and stomp down the wastage in the civil services, and give ppl its money back.

Pundit Puckle said...

Who are they trying to f@&k? Russians were already in space prior to 69. We are still unable to produce our own car engine, after all these years.

So, if you send a Malaysian up to space, what else can he do apart from spinning a "gasing"?

Rubbish!!!

ardy said...

Ah, you're probably right again, Zewt. The way the country is heading. I don't think it's going to stay the same any longer now.

There are just way too many idiots running it!

zewt said...

chingy - hey there... welcome to AZAIG. we gotta really do something about it then... are u registered? :)

rational thinker - like i said... i am not concern about gomen not subsidising petrol... i am just concern about the way they spend the savings... u know where i am getting at.

pundit puckle - this country full of rubbish ler... literally and metaphorically. sigh... cant wait to get out really.

ardy - which is why we need to do something. we can do something. we just have to stop thinking that it's insignificant.

Seok Thong said...

Seriously, i think spinning the gasing is the best that they can think of..With those politikus's brains, what can you expect from them, right? I really wonder what's wrong with the one that suggests spinning gasing in space..

The gasing experiment thing..'Ohh..this is SO interesting' *rolling eyes*

I don't care with the petrol price, i'll still consider buying myself a big fat car!!!

Btw, is there hybrid car in malaysia?

may said...

hmmmm... actually it won't make much difference that I'm taking public transport, especially buses. buses need fuel as well. and I suppose it's also inevitable that the cost of rising fuel prices will be passed on down to the consumer... *sigh*

zewt said...

seok thong - well... think it's definitely worth it to get a car in germany... hybrid car... yes... there's a civic from honda which runs on petrol generated electricity.

may - yeah, so true. at the end of the day... it is the salary earner who will suffer most.

Tsu Lin said...

Hi Zewt, what's your e-mail? Got a view on this.

zewt said...

tsu lin - will drop a note at your page.

Johnny Ong said...

when i blogged abt this space thingy in my blog, i received quite a number racist comments (which i hav to delete off) unlike yrs who are mainly known frens or well mannered blog readers.

zewt said...

johnny ong - hi there, welcome to AZAIG! well... there are many racist ppl out there. it's good to have some control. thanks for dropping by, hope to see you around.
