KAMPAR – The government cannot lower the price of diesel as it had paid out a lot of subsidy for the fuel previously.
Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Hasan Malek however said consumers need not be overly worried over the three sen increase now as the price would fluctuate monthly.
“The government will monitor the world price of petrol monthly and decide on its new price every month,” he said.
Hasan was speaking to reporters after opening Giant hypermarket here today. – NST
