Rationing

The headlines today warn consumers that they will only be able to buy 5 litres of cooking oil per shop for the next couple of weeks. After rumours of a price hike the general public have been stockpiling and now there is a national shortage of cooking oil. The government have ordered increased production and hope the rationing will slow the problem!

Really, how much cooking oil does one need? I know I barely cook but surely 5 litres should keep the average family going for quite some time. But I'm sure the government have it all under control and that crisis will be averted.

And how much was the much feared price rise? 5c/ltr, 10c/ltr??? There's nothing like a good ol' Malaysian over reaction and panic mentality.
