    petronas is a GLC company..so the government keeps all the checkbook and the actual account book..the profit that you see here is not necessarily the truth..they might have released to the press & public a lower figure than what they actually profitted !! :vangry:

    😆 a ah. mungkin saudara btol. mungkin saya jugak silap. sebab nak kaji acc petronas tak pandai sgt. saya kira based on penggunaan sehari dikumpul menjadi jumlah tahunan darab dengan harga pasaran je. pastu calculate balik dengan penjimatan saudara DSAI (simple calculation je bro). tak kan menjadi 50c punya. kalau tak cakap camnie, nnti rakyat mesia esp orang kampung macam saya termakan kata2 orang politik. sbb mereka nak survive kita kna phucked mcm kamasutra. buat camnie, at least ade jugak orang macam saudara sedar. kalau nk di ikut fakta kerajaan dengan penjimatan subsidi tue wallahulam. saya tak sepakar itu. thx drop comment. :up:

    😆 you are right :up: baguslah kita boleh berbincang tentang sesuatu isu dari menyalahkan satu sama lain. kiraan saudara betul, penggunaan sehari tetapi harus diingat, kerajaan cuma membayar subsidi kepada minyak yang dijual oleh syarikat minyak asing kerana syarikat-syarikat ini menjual minyak pada harga pasaran dan harga di pam minyak adalah setelah kerajaan membayar perbezaan harga pasaran dan harga di pam. oleh itu, mungkin 50-60% sahaja jumlah penggunaan seharian yang perlu disubsidi, pada pendapat saya. lagipun, mengapa perlu subsidi minyak yang dikeluarkan oleh negara sendiri – petronas?

    haha! i am sure fortune magazine, being a reputable magazine check their source properly before they published the ranking. so, all this crap about petronas making less money is crap.
