  1. Cooking gas being a petroleum product and the low prices of oil it should have been reduced by about 50% months ago. Keeping the reduction until now is yet another attempt to sway us in favour of you when voting.
    This reduction is too little, too late. If you think you have been cheated, you probably have been.
