after hearing the news on ABS-CBN's TV Patrol, they announced the the big 3 and other independent oil companies had increased the gasoline and diesel prices from P.50 to P1.
once again, these companies are starting to play on the gas prices which would prey on local motorists like me. i have been observing the trends on oil prices, and their styles just kept on fluctuating. there are times wherein these companies would decide on a roll back, but a week or so, the prices would hike up 2 or 3 times the amount of the roll back.
both my parents are living at the middle east as of the moment, and as much as possible, i try to keep myself up-to-date on the prices of the gasoline. they would tell me that the prices of the gasoline in the world market is going down, but how come the prices of gasoline is going up? do these people have sense of pity on us motorists? with the global crisis, it's already questionable why these prices are going up.
just recently, i had also heard from the news that these companies are planning to hike up the prices of gasoline by P2 and diesel P3 by the weekend. WHAT THE F*&#????? do these people have sense of empathy on us motorist???? we should do something about this! for sure the government is calling up a conference once again for the questionable price hike, but after the conference, it's still all the same. nothing would ever change and these companies would just abuse their power and play with the oil prices.
we filipinos can do something about this. we just can't depend on the government with every problem our country is going through. it's just a matter of who are going to step up for us and fight for what is fair!
