Bacolod, Metro Manila
fuel price gap narrows


The fuel price gap between Bacolod and Metro Manila appeared to have further narrowed to P4 to P4.20 a liter  for diesel, and P3.24 to P3.54 for gasoline  yesterday.

The drop is by almost half of the previous price gap that averaged at about P8, and triggered numerous complaints from Negrenses, threats of class suits against the oil firms, congressional intervention and an upcoming Department of Energy hearing in Bacolod City.

Businessman Ed Alunan, who has been at the forefront of the call for lower fuel prices, yesterday said he hopes the drop in prices in Bacolod  is not just a temporary discount because of the threats of suits and DOE intervention, and that it further goes down to, at most, P1 per liter between Manila and Bacolod.moremoremore
