Rumours spread real fast. Especially rumours regarding price increases. This afternoon, SMSes were flying around stating that the petrol price will increase, some stating up to RM3.20 and some, RM2.70. I was placing my bets on a 20% increase though, about RM2.30.

So, at around 5pm, people who are leaving work took heed of the rumours and visited the petrol station to fill up petrol at the price of RM1.92/liter for the last time. Does not matter whether it was empty tank of half tank, as long as there was money to be saved.

And there it happened, again, as always. Petrol stations jammed up with cars. Pump attendants were busy as heck, receiving payments, filling the petrol and directing traffic ensuring that chaos won”t happen (queue jumpers, etc). Roads leading in and out of the petrol stations were then clogged up, swallowing innocent drivers into the jam. Stubborn and ignorant drivers
