    Whatever, however-much price reduction will not hold any water this time around. President should have learnt a lesson from the Uva province elections. Despite fuel price reduction his party could not save their face.

    chandi Thursday, 09 October 2014 08:26 AM

    This is something I have been talking about. Expenses of Laughfs Gas is exorbitantly high. They were in serious financial crisis due pumping funds from gas trade to supermarket and some industries like tyre,and thermal power which were loss making.

    They were not qualified even to get listing in stock exchange. But with bogus reports they managed and got thru.

    As per their actual expenses gas cylinder can be sold exactly half price. At last president has listened to some seniors not the corrupt Consumer Authority.Prices of many items can be reduced in this manner. rice,vegetable and Diesel.

    Wow I hope that the election will be held in late 2015 allowing us to enjoy these goodies

    Man Thursday, 09 October 2014 08:42 AM

    This signals that there is a national election, shortly.

    After the elections, will these reductions prevail, as before?
