Differentiate between reasonable and excessive increase

When there is an increase in charges and fees, many people complained loudly in the social media.

We have to differentiate between a modest increase, in line with the cost of living, and an excessive increase.

Town councils have to increase their fees because the cost of labor and expenses have gone up. If the increase is in line with the cost of living, it should be acceptable.

The same consideration applies to fares for public transport.

We can complain if the increase is excessive, or if the town council or other agency is wasteful in their spending.

Let us be more sensible when we make our complaint, OK?
