petrol=valuable asset

The price of fuel is rising again. SIGH~ ( I think this is everyone's reaction when they learn about it maybe except for kids). That means no more 游车河 and speeding (maximum speed of 50 km/h). Why, you'd ask. It's because the faster you drive, the more petrol your car consumes, meaning more money burnt. Besides, if you brake when your car is running on a high speed, the fuel level goes down even more drastically. If not, can consider to not switching on air-cond while driving. I guess it's not that hard when weather is cool. What about during hot days?........
I think I rather ride a bicycle then.
Yesterday evening, I queued to pump petrol till full tank. All the petrol stations were crowded, as if there's a banner which writes "SALE! up to 70%, LAST DAY!!!"
There were even reporters. Aiya, why didn't they interview me, so that you might see me in the papers tomorrow. If you see a pretty young lady wearing sunglasses and a turquoise top in a white toyota in a Shell petrol station in one of the pictures of the front page of newspaper tomorrow, that's me!~ haha. But there's really nothing to be happy about.

Nothing we can do about the fuel price but we can cut down our spending. That is the best way to get around it. Also try some ways to make side income to supplement our income.

hmm...i guess that's gona be tough. if it's really that convenient to ride a bicycle, y not but it's dangerous since we don't hv special lanes for bikers. besides, crime rates will continue to rise, i don't think it'll be safe to cycle cause cyclers seem to be easy victims for snatchers.

i agree that thr's really nothing much we can do besides cutting off other expenses like maybe on entertainment and so on. but the impact is so big, like they say a chain reaction. if all the consumers lose their buying power, thr'll be inflation. the economy will be greatly affected. i'm not sure what measurements the government has taken to prevent the worst that might happen. if not, we might hv to struggle. i dont think we can compare to the past or anything cause it won't help. the only best way is to seek a good formulation to resolve all these chaos.
