    Fuel pricing formula is simple: New Price = Old Price 5 and New Price < Rajapaksha Regime Price.

    Our thiefs in parliament do this not depending on hte world fuel prices, but based on our exchange rate, our dollar is depreciation, and to keep up with that they increase petrol prices, but i wonder the impact of importing chairs at 640,000 rs per chair for parliament, and also about their new luxury vehicles imports on tax free,These people are shameless bastards, they live luxurious life by stealing from poor and they dont have a shame on that.

    So the two monthly revisions which promised consumer relief was all bogus, as every two monthly revisions have only increased the prices. Mr.President

    Interesting cos the West Taxes Internstioanl (WTI) crude prices, benchmark prices for SL orders are trading at USD 65 or less a Barrell compared to USD 75 a Barrell few months ago, though prices have risen slightly over last few weeks due to temporary US inventory and strong USD. However, overall the crude oil prices are relatively low on MoM basis.

    Here we go round the mulberry bush. 225 01 jokers globe trotting at the expense of the tax payers with no benefit to the nation. These jokers should realise that the people will not be able to stomach the ever rising cost of living. Should these Yamapalanaya remain? People will decide soon and dump the present day politicians to the garbage bin at the next election

    The new price is nothing to do with world oil price but Rupee depreciation, every moth our rupee is depreciating to Dollars so always Oil price will increase every month, no need of a committee or anyone to calculate the new price. Just add the rupee deprecation to the old price! ie is the new price. This is the formula: old price Rupee depreciation to Dollar = New price oil price!
