Petrol dealers in a tight spot


Unhappy lot: Petrol dealers protesting the upcoming weekly fuel price float at a special meeting in Kuala Lumpur.

SHAH ALAM: Petrol dealers say they have to resort to severe cost-cutting measures if the government persists with its weekly fuel price float, which goes into effect on Jan 1.

Petrol Dealers Association of Malaysia (PDAM) president Datuk Khairul Annuar Abdul Aziz said this includes letting go of employees as the minimum wage increase will also kick in that day and cutting stations open hours to 18 hours instead of 24 hours.
