    That means price of gas will increase by Rs 5/-. Let's see Johnny Boy's pricing formula.

    Gas comes down and tax goes up. Of course this is to protect the local gas producers in the far away future. Kata kiyannada!!

    If there is no bread eat cake! If there is no gas use electricity or go eat at a Five Star Hotel.

    I dont understand the working of this taxation. Tax goes up by Rs.5 but the price goes up by Rs. 13. Can some good soul explain this.

    But if you go against me, you are in jail.
