ABSTRACT
The article reflects on the issue of petroleum cost and its impact on the international market as of October 2005. Asia is not alone in cushioning the retail price of petrol, but because of its general dependence on imported oil, it is harder-pressed to do it. China manipulates prices not only to curb potential unrest but also to aid interests, such as a state industry or the military.
