    People are very busy with T20 so its the best time to increase the prices of commodity. The news will be passed unnoticed, as all are more concerned and interested in T20

    Hooray, now the price hike in bus fares and the rest. Can Johnny explain if this is to safe guard local oil production.

    IOC here is only for the purpose of Indian presence in the country. Rs 6 difference means, they do not want to sell the product. Waste of 100 filling stations in the country.

    One gets the feeling that this is a trick used by CPC that whenever they want to jack up prices, they get LIOC to do so first and then raise it themselves to fall in line. Then the chain reaction starts with bus operators, transporters etc. increasing their prices with the ultimate loser being the poor consumer.

    This increase in price make the ordinary citizen to suffer more,it is like the bull trampling the person who fell down from the tree.

    I can already smell on T20 Final date, who will follow this good example in the price index.

    Forget the oil prices people, Sri Lanka are now in the semi-finals! So let us party! By the way, we should not forget that GOSL has been subsidising the oil price at a loss to protect the consumer for years! For a third world county with no proper tax system and with free education and health, it is hard to sustain these freebies in the the long run. Of course the dogs will bark as usual.
