Fuel service stations try to make extra profit by closing down their fuel service stations due to rise in fuel price
Action against fuel service station operators who closed their outlets on the verge of fuel price being increased will be taken by the Ministry of Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism (KPDNKK), since several complaints were received for the reason that fuel service stations wanted to make extra profit by closing down their stations.
This was following the declaration by the weekly fuel pricing system that the price of RON95 and RON97 would be increased.
Minister of KPDNKK, Datuk Seri HamzahZainuddin said, "We have received reports from consumers and have begun investigating on the matter. We will meet up with fuel dealers to take action under the Controlled Supply Act 1961, should they are proven guilty of hiding fuel."
“It was wrong of fuel dealers to close their outlets early without the ministry's permission,” said KPDNKK enforcement director MohdRoslanMahayudin. Source: SunDaily - Image source:TindakMalaysia PWKD11072017
