    Healthy sign for the consumers, government is doing it's best to relieve the masses of hardships, it will be a slow and steady process, let's give a breather for the government.

    Don't know what these tuk and bus mafia will say now. If rates are not reduced just boycott them.

    Should this be reduced to 200/- to bring the tuk and bus fare down? These people will still find excuses for higher transport cost.

    reduction will be deemed if it goes below 175, here in this case, that "highest priced remained" caming down can not be considered reduction of fuel prices, this seems an eye-wash.

    Well done, Ranil and Kanchana this is a good step to relieve the public from economic difficulties atleast to a certain extent.
