The recent hike in petrol prices should be welcomed rather than criticized. Most people are able to afford cars not only because they are cheaper compared to say Thailand but also because petrol prices are relatively low.

Perhaps, the government should increase further the price of petrol to discourage people from spending idle time on the roads.
