DOE moves vs. higher
fuel rates in Neg. Occ.

The Department of Energy yesterday called on oil companies to bring down the prices of fuel in Negros Occidental that are from P4.50 to P5 a liter  higher than in the National Capital Region, and to increase  the number of their “PNoy Lanes” that grant discounts on diesel for all public transport  vehicles.

DOE Undersecretary Jose Layug Jr. said he  conducted an unannounced inspection of  prices at gasoline stations in Bacolod City yesterday, following reports that fuel in Negros Occidental was selling   P8 a liter higher  than in Metro Manila.

“We  did not find an P8 price difference,  it   was between P4.50 to P5 a liter, which is consistent with other areas in the Visayas,” he said.moremoremore

“With the three power plants coming on line by the next quarter, we expect the problem of power shortage to be addressed,” he said.moremoremore
