The price of domestic gas will remain unchanged for the next two months despite distributors seeking an increase in the price from tonight, Consumer affairs Minister Bandula Gunawardena told reporters a short while ago. He said the government has decided to remove the tax component on gas as a relief to the distributors. (SR)

    this is why we should have elections all year and every year. what better way to control cost of living :)

    Monday, 01 March 2010 10:46 AM

    Calm before the storm. They have managed to keep the increase on hold for the time being by removing the tax which really is an Election Trick.

    Monday, 01 March 2010 10:54 AM

    Good Relief till end of Election.

    Monday, 01 March 2010 10:59 AM

    Monday, 01 March 2010 11:02 AM

    NO NO those who are accusing the govt. as a election gimmick why can't they come to power with promises in the similar manner NO NO general public do not beleive SF, UNP, JVP. They will suffer a disastrious defeat at the general election.

    Monday, 01 March 2010 11:03 AM

    Another election gimmick... ! but the question is, how many of poor innocent people can understand this...! Shame...! Shame!

    Monday, 01 March 2010 11:03 AM

    THIS CLEARLY INDICATES THAT A HUGE HIKE IN GAS PRICE CAN BE EXPERIENCED IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE ELECTION. HOW ABOUT THE OTHER ITEMS SUCH AS PETROL, RICE, FLOUR, SUGAR, DHAL. ETC....

    Monday, 01 March 2010 11:24 PM

    GAS 'EXPLOSION,' AROUND THE CORNER.

    Tuesday, 02 March 2010 12:01 AM

    Monday, 01 March 2010 11:20 AM

    Taxes will increase after the elections. We might go back to the Manioc Yugaya of the 1960s.

    Monday, 01 March 2010 11:23 AM

    Monday, 01 March 2010 11:58 AM

    A very cunning government that takes the idiotic citizens for a ride. This times elections should reflect whether this population consists of actually morons or a more cunning population than the government and its ministers.

    Monday, 01 March 2010 12:03 PM

    Monday, 01 March 2010 09:41 AM

    Uncle Bandula is playing snakes and ladders. He is a good joker.

    Monday, 01 March 2010 09:48 AM

    One thing for sure. Nothing will go up until the elections. The drama starts after.

    Monday, 01 March 2010 09:48 AM

    It would have been better to say until the elections are over.

    Monday, 01 March 2010 09:52 AM

    Monday, 01 March 2010 09:54 AM

    Monday, 01 March 2010 08:12 PM

    All know that the gas prices will go-up soon after the Election, yet the voters will still vote for the UPFA, because "Mahinda Rajapakse won the battle against the LTTE."

    Monday, 01 March 2010 10:27 AM

    Interesting. Prior to presidential elections, price was reduced. Now that that the Parlimentary elections are coming up, price will remain same for TWO months (Till elections are over). There after exponential rise in prices for sure.
