It is not call gas...in China....

It is called PETROL......or DIESEL...
In China as in rest of the English speaking world....gas..means LPG...or LIQUIDFIED PETROLEUM GAS.....

China car ownership is not high yet....only 60 million vehicles...about 30% of USA...

in Malaya...the increase in fuel prices to Rm1.92/litre...or US$1.60/gallon US...ie. a little cheaper than USA...

effectively...the Pattani, Natives are out of the car markets...
Proton, the mid prices (US$10,000 average price)....will be facing serious problems

anyway...those buggers do not own cars in the first place...
some of the Riaus will now have to use a bike in addition to their regular car...
a normal person will not spend more than 5% of his wages for petrol or diesel....
so many will use the motorcycle instead of the car...
but now we cap the price of fuel by adding in alcohol and bio-oil....while any further rise....will be felt deeply in the USA.....don't be so happy Mr. Fish....

can't wait for oil to reach US$100/barrel...then you will have riots and revolution in the USA!!!!!!

distances are further in the USA.....

...and soon...the pump prices will exceed 5% of income and reaching 10% in the USA......and you know...America is a fully automobile society...the pain will be acute...

what are the pump prices in the USA today.....
is it US$2.00/gallon?
my old lady friend in Singapore, visited me yesterday..she sold her car in Singapore and is now taking public transport....pump prices in Singapore is supposed to be worse...at US$4.00/gallon..terrible.......

the creeping increase in Rmb, Rm and use of vegetable source in fuel mix, will cap further increase......and allow for more cars to be sold....

In Indonesia..i was told a 20% drop in car sales being experienced now........
In Malaysia...the Proton car company will probably go bankrupt while Perodua..the 2nd national car with fuel sipping models will prosper......

Gm, Ford..wll probably go bankrupt in the USA....as sales slump due to fuel guzzling models in its stockpile.....
and more imports from Korea, China and maybe Suziki, Daihatsu from Japan.....


good luck, mr. Fish..America needs it more than china...
