Star newspaper (4th January 2011) at page N10 "Cooking oil price stays the same for now, says Lian Hoe"
Comment: This means of course, the price will soon increase.
At page N18 "Prices of luxury items stay" and under subheadlines "They may be down in four months", which is self-explanatory.
Cooking oil without a doubt is a necessity. By definition, luxury items are not.
The Malaysian government is a caring government.
