Stop Gassing up North

It’s really a shame for rich Singaporeans to be heading North for cheap petrols.

Those who own and drive Singapore-sold cars should know that their certificate of entitlement alone is upwards of S$70,000 or RM210,000/- without inputting the cost of the car.

There is therefore no reason to rush with poorer folks for cheap RON 95 petrol costing RM5.00/- a litre.

It is not worth it, especially when driving a new or expensive car on badly-paved roads with lots of potholes on Johore roads. The cost for repair is much higher than the RM5.00 gas.

By stopping to gas up North, Singaporeans are also helping their authorities to deploy their security forces to other high crime areas rather than at petrol stations to check whether Singaporeans have pumped their cheap gas.

It will do alot of good if Singaporeans keep to driving on Singapore roads and pump local petrol which I was informed are higher quality-produced gases from the Singapore islands.

  • illiterate pap voters:

    petrol is petrol.

    we always recommend not buying anything in pap island. because for the same things, they cost much more in pap island.

    the same tin of biscuits, the same 95 petrol, all cost many times more in pap island.

    the mentality, cost more means better quality is a product of being under pap education for too long.

    that is why when rankings say pap nus ntu are ranked higher than Yale and Princeton, cotton sheep celebrate, never stopping to ask why ceca ah neh degree is more employable in pap island than a degree from pap nu ntu.

    we digress.

    the reason why it is not smart to buy anything in pap island is because every S$1 spent, 80 cents go to rental, taxes, and such.

    the same S$1 spent across the causeway, only 33.3 cents go to rental taxes, and such. you get 66.6 cents worth of value compared with just 20 cents worth of value in pap island.

    therefore, if 95 petrol is available in Johor, go. why throw away good money?

    WE end with this. many visit Johor to have their cars fixed up. for the same fix in pap island, it costs much more.

    The Ugly Singaporean rears its head everytime cheaper or f.o.c items are on sale..no matter how rich they are.
    Remember few years ago families with mercedes benz cars drove up to a collection point for free school books , meant for children from humble backgrounds.
    Are these people really sgs?
    Courtesy campaigns all for nothing!
    ..or the pressure cooker rat race are breeding such humans these days.

    And why not get cheaper gas in JB if you are planning a shopping trip there? This is extra incentive on top of “cheaper” grocery prices. Make a shopping list of the items and prices sold at NTUC or SS before you go in, and then compare them with prices in JB to be sure that they are really cheaper. You may find that it’s not always the case.

    aiyoh ?? so what ?? See-OR-Ee no choice as it is mandated by institutional white monkey idiots ??? just because you pay high for See-OR-Ee, that not mean that it must follow logically that you need to pay high for petrol, road use, parking fee, etc, etc (one high cost factor lending credence to another factor resulting in everything costing more ??) ??

    but if can save on other areas (save on petrol on the other side ??), of course must take advantage lar ?? just like many FTs who know how to take advantage of the open-leg policy openly offered by the white monkey idiots and gang ???

    //There is therefore no reason to rush with poorer folks for cheap RON 95 petrol costing RM5.00/- a litre.//

    aiyoh ?? why call it rush ??? average sane people will look for low cost deals after accounting for some inconvenience ??

  • Ab is Back Again:

    Economics say there is no need to put any control on buying goods in JB / Malaysia. Ultimately, most people will tire of long queue at causeway to save some money. and for those who are still willing, then their marginal value of money is higher than time and they should be allowed to do so. e. g. the total extra time needed to shop in JB is 6 hours. And the total net savings are $150. Most people would ultimately value their 6 hours more than $150 and give up. while to those whom $150 is worth more than 6 hours will do so, and they should be allowed to do without barriers. There will also be a case of equalization of price between JB and Woodlands over time. We should be guided only by economics, nothing else

    //Economics say there is no need to put any control on buying goods in JB //

    yar lor ?? similarly sinkie land is importing so many things (food, vegetables, machines, etc, etc ??) from other countries (including labour in the name of foreign talent from open-leg policy ??) to take advantage because as per the rationale of the white monkey idiots there is so much we can produce from our own kind hor ???

    the problem is that the white monkey gang wants to keep the cake and still eat it lar (want to pao-jiak in most things for themselves and kaki lang gang ???) ??

  • Soccerbetting2:

    Reported on the Shin Min newsoaper on 12th March 2022 page 2 bottom right section newspaper that ICA custom confiscated 2016 packed of cigarettes at Yishun Street 42 multi storey carperk and arrested 2 men plus two cargo vehicle .Men is 26 and 31 years old. Still got other illegal substance confiscated.Evaded Tax for confiscated cigarettes is amounted to $172,160 and evaded GST is $13,700.

    Response :How come till now ICA has not published out the two men names to be charged ? Why ? And till now, did ICA charged those two men already ? Seem like smuggled cigarette into Singapore but no person really charged all these years for the newspaper never reported out so many of all these cases out and their sentence judgement ! Pui ! Confiscated all their cargoes and behind let them off ? So did those ICA take those confiscated cigarettes and illegal substances to sell behind the scene and make huge profits for themselves ? So where are all those confiscated illegal cigarettes all these years kept at since no news of these illegal cigarettes are published to be dispose off by burning them away ? Still keeping them for what ? Pui ! Shanmugam no need to check ?

    @Smart Nation:

    NTUC posted $128.7 million as profits in the year 2020. Sheng Siong’s profit for the same year year is $139.1 million. Household items including food is definitely cheaper in Malaysia. If you are referring to items like almonds,
    Walnuts or cashew nuts, they are cheaper in Singapore but not in NTUC or SS but in the basement of Fu Lou Shou Complex.

    The cost of living is too high for many Singapore Residents. The PAP seem to think that it is a win to be the third most expensive city in the world. The increase in population increases consumer demand and thus drives up prices in Singapore. Malaysia gives a reprieve to the many struggling to make ends meet. The three quarter tank rule should be scrapped as consumers should have the right to source for the cheapest.

  • opposition dude:

    Oh Gilbert HK Tan, there are more reasons than just pumping petrol in JB for the good old pre pandemic days when our cars were lining up hours to get into JB. Petrol is cheap there and the quality is good enough for people to do so regularly. Not to mention grocery shopping, eating out, hanky panky in nightclubs and massage parlours ho ho ho.

    Sure, the Johor residents are grumbling about the high prices for food and essential items since supermakets and shops are catered more to Singaporeans than Johoreans. But Singaporeans don’t mind since it’s still cheaper compared to NTUC. And with the exchange rate it’s even more incentive to drive over on the weekends.

    So now with no restriction for us to drive over it’s just a matter of time before the good times come again for JB businesses.

    @Ab is Back Again:

    The six hours could be removed if both countries agree to do away with the passport checks at the borders. I travelled from the US to Canada and in Europe, there are no border checks repeatedly in different States. The PAP is excellent in enforcement resulting in various fines but do not have the skills to govern. So the resident population has to bear the consequences including the long jams.

  • What talking you?:

    Going to JB for cheaper fuel is OK but not if it’s the subsidised ron 95. Same goes for other subsidised goods that are only meant for Malaysian citizens.

    It’s a win-win for JB businesses that depend on Singaporeans and also for Singaporeans who try to alleviate the high costs of living in Singapore by finding cheaper alternatives in JB.

    The other thing that is not OK is urinating in public and speeding on Malaysian roads like they’ve just come out of their caves.

  • Smart Nation:

    Govt should do away with the three-quarter-tank rule. Why make your citizens pay more for fuel, when they can fill up the whole tank for less in JB? When cost of living is so high and things are so expensive in SG, govt should help citizens stretch their dollars and not squeeze them further with such a ridiculous rule. If anyone should stop Singaporeans from getting cheap gas in Malaysia, it would be the Malaysian govt. The SG govt should work in the interest of the people to ease the cost of living.

    Shameless? Really ?
    So is Hungarian being shameless in voting in an authoritarian President Viktor Orban who will not send their father, their mother, the children into war ? Just answer Yes or No will suffice.

    Why Americunt/Western labeled authoritarian Hungary President Viktor Orban could win the election ?

    Because Orban campaigned primarily on a platform of keeping Hungary’s troops and weapons out of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.

    In simple term, Orban say he will not send your father, mother and children into war and be killed for the profit of Aemricunts.

    And dang dang, voters agreed with him and he was handed another victory.

    Very interesting ! Don’t know when this riot took place.Indonesia riot on high food prices and costs ! Wait till carbon tax take place in Indonesia and jet up all costs much further ansd all Indonesia will start to riot ! See whether that can easily be stopped like Singapore ? Carry on and cook up more con people carbon tax to solve global warming problem and you see prices of everything start to rise everywhere ! Will implement carbon tradeable credits going to solve carbon warming problems ? Unlikely ! Carbon credits only fuel the rise of goods everywhere ! If price of goods in zindonesia rises,it will have riots ! And again Singapore shameless women wing will pump more of our money into Indonesia to help them to cool their riot problem ? It become higher cost for all of us ! More and more carbon tax ? More and more carbon credits trading ? More and more help ? Where does the problem start ? Start by setting con people carbon credits law and creating fake thing like gobal warming without really solving global warming problem !

    It’s funny how Singaporeans are asked to accept foreign talents, more competition in the job market, upgrade their skills blah, blah, blah. And when Singaporeans decided to go up north to spend their hard-earned monies, they are told that’s shameful. Some people just want to have the say in everything.

    Why do a guy jack lifted his car to squeeze in more petrol? Because he’s rich? The lack of empathy amongst Singaporeans again shows how we have failed as a country. It’s the same old, “You died your own business”.
