Baru-baru ini, di antara rancak Konvensyen BN dan protes kenaikan air SAJ, rakyat sekali lagi menghadapi kenaikan harga bahanapi, yang merupakan kali kedua bagi tahun ini. Jumlah subsidi yang ditarik diharapkan dapat menyumbang kepada penjimatan sejumlah RM1.2 bilion kepada kerajaan.

Harga-harga bahanapi terkini bagi petrol RON95 ialah RM1.90/liter, gas LPG RM1.90/liter, bahanapi diesel meningkat kepada RM1.80/liter. Berhubung kenaikan harga ini, pihak PEMANDU menegaskan peningkatan ini masih lebih rendah berbanding harga di negara-negara jiran seperti Indonesia, Singapura dan Thailand. Harga gula juga dinaikkan ke RM2.10/kg.

Kenaikan sebelum ini, iaitu pada Julai 2010, adalah ketika rakyat berhadapan dengan musim perayaan.  Kali ini pula, bagi mereka yang mempunyai anak-anak yang sudah bersekolah, perancangan untuk tambang bas, persiapan persekolahan dan wang saku harian anak-anak perlu dibuat dengan sebaiknya.

New subsidy cuts to save RM1.2bil
—————————

PUTRAJAYA: The prices of Ron95 and diesel have increased by 5sen per litre while liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and sugar will go up by 5 sen per kg and 20sen per kg respectively. Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Idris Jala said that the price hikes, effective midnight yesterday, were expected to result in a total savings of RM1.18bil.

He said the savings would be channelled towards the Government Transformation Programme including improving the urban transportation network, rural basic infrastructure and roads, education and efforts to combat crime.

Idris described the increase as very minimal and said it should not hurt the people.

“I think it is fair to the rakyat. I believe people will be able to accept it,” he told a media briefing on the second wave of subsidy rationalisation here yesterday.

He said the price of Ron95, which would be raised to RM1.90 per litre from the current price of RM1.85, would still be lower compared to its retail price in Indonesia (RM2.46), Singapore (RM4.63) and Thailand (RM4.25).

Idris said the price of diesel would retail at RM1.80 per litre compared to RM2.50 in Indonesia, RM3.18 in Singapore and RM2.96 in Thailand.

LPG will retail at RM1.90 as opposed to RM2 in Indonesia, RM6.42 in Singapore and RM1.93 in Thailand.

The new price of sugar at RM2.10 compares favourably to its cost in Indonesia (RM3.50), Singapore (RM3.80) and Thailand (RM2.80).

In the first subsidy rationalisation programme on July 16, the price of Ron95 and diesel went up by 5sen per litre while sugar and LPG were raised by 25sen and 10sen respectively, resulting in total savings of RM779mil.
