BY CHRYSEE SAMILLANO
Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia yesterday said has reiterated the appeal to Energy Secretary Angelo Reyes for his intervention in prices of fuel products in Bacolod City that are higher than in Manila and other cities in Mindanao.
Negros Occidental Gov. Isidro Zayco had earlier also issued his objection to such price disparities.
In his letter to Reyes dated Sept. 17, 2009, Leonardia said that based on a comparative study on fuel product prices in Bacolod, Manila and other cities in Mindanao conducted by the city's Energy Task Force, prices of gasoline XCS/Gold and unleaded/extra were lower in Manila, Davao, Cagayan de Oro and Iligan cities than those of the same product in Bacolod.
