The Malaysia Fuel
To stabilize fuel prices, the Malaysian government introduced a fuel pricing mechanism in 1983. The idea was some sort of a slate calculation, so that prices can remain constant over longer periods.
However, during the last years, the government continued to subsidize gasoline and diesel. The Domestic Trade Division (part of the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs) supervises fuel pricing in Malaysia.
