    When the world prices increase who will pay the difference? It is good if it is from money stolen by politicians during last decades?

    Average cost increase per km. For a luxury vehicle- 25-50 cents. For a normal vehicle 15-35 cents for a 3 wheeler or bike 6- 10 cents. LKR not USD. Oh. What a burden on the 'masses'?
