>fuel price hike: double trouble for low, fixed income groups

>PEOPLE belonging to low and fixed income groups have started feeling the adversity caused by the latest hike in fuel prices as prices of almost all commodities including rice and edible oil shot up across the country following the government move, The Daily Star reports.
The fresh rise in prices will put poor people in double trouble since they have already been facing hardship in buying essentials at higher rates for months.
Meanwhile, over one lakh people are living amid fear of losing jobs as a large number of big, medium and small industries in the southwestern region are likely to shut down because of the abnormal price like of furnace oil.
The government raised the prices of energy fuels on Monday by a huge margin, which caused chaos in the transport sector with operators in many places charging more than the re-fixed fares.
The communications secretary, however, said mobile courts would operate to stop the malpractices.
Many consumers in Dhaka and elsewhere said they are simply unable to afford any further price hike of commodities.
