Petrol prices go up...again

I'm sure you don't need me to tell you that petrol prices in Singapore seem to be constantly going in only one direction of late. So this week's news comes as no surprise.

As someone who utilises the car almost everyday, the rising prices can be quite disheartening, even with whatever discounts we can squeeze from whatever cards or offers we make use of.

That said, I actually came across an article a while back, comparing prices of petrol in the US and various European countries.

And when I compared the prices, and calculated our own after currency conversion, we don't seem to fare that badly actually

(P.S. The article is here by the way)

The problem is the disparity, between incomes and prices of consumer goods. The difference is simply too great. I mean, close to $80 for a full tank of fuel every week is ridiculous for the average income we're getting in Singapore, and it adds up to quite a substanstial amount every month.

This applies to quite a lot of other things in Singapore as well.

What can we do about it though?

Well, election is coming. Vote wisely...

petrol, fuel, diesel and 2 more...

This is not a good news because a lot of people are still striving to cope up with our economy. Another thing, this will affect not only the car costs but also our basic needs. I guess this turns out due to what's happening in Libya and Japan.
