Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Shafie Apdal announced that motorists purchasing petrol at stations with a credit card would have to pay more for their petrol. He said a new formula was being devised to balance out the credit card charges currently being born by the petrol stations.

Let’s hope it’s nothing more than the 1.25% commission charged by banks. In fact since the costs should be shared by the motorist and the station, it should be exactly half of that. It would be a blatant and obvious rip off if it wasn’t.

The new formula will be announced later today.

Update: formula announced!
