Youth group condemns LPG price hike
‘“WHAT are the President and his men doing about the continuing fluctuations of LPG prices,” asks Kabataan Partylist spokesperson Vencer Crisostomo
Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) has increased its price by approximately Php 6 pesos, effective 12:01 a.m. September 1. This means a P66 increase for an 11kg tank.
“A 6-peso increase is not an easy thing especially for majority of Filipinos who can hardly get by. Does this administration want the Filipino people to suffer? Where there is political will, there is a way to buffer the fluctuations of prices in the world market. But, clearly, this administration does not have that will, or it may simply not care enough, to find ways to alleviate the chronic problems of oil and LPG increases,” Crisostomo said.
