Reports: Malaysia to ban foreigners from filling up gasoline near border

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - Malaysia will ban people in foreign-registered vehicles from buying the country's heavily subsidized fuel at gasoline stations near the border with Thailand and Singapore, news reports said Tuesday.

Shahrir said the ban could take effect as early as Friday at up to 300 petrol stations within 50 kilometers (30 miles) from the borders with Thailand and Singapore.
