Putting water price into perspective

Let me put the Malaysian governments proposed price in perspective.

Consumers in Singapore pay $3.69 per 1,000 liters of water for consumption exceeding 40 cu m. There will be a further price increase in July 2019.

The current price of water expressed in 1,000 gallons in RM is 3.69 X 3 X 4.54609 = RM 50.32

We now pay 3 sen per 1,000 gallon. Malaysia wants to increase the price to 50 sen or 16 times of the current price.

At 50 sens, it will be 1% of the price that Singapore consumers now pay to the government.
