'Petrol hike more of a burden than no plastic bag rule in S'gor'
The 20 sen charge imposed by the Selangor government through its "no plastic bag" ruling will not burden the people.

Instead, Yeo claimed, the 20 sen a litre hike on the RON95 petrol price early this month has been a burden on consumers, for they have been affected by the increment.
