with P2 oil rollback
BY MARCHEL P. ESPINA

A transport leader in Negros Occidental was unhappy with the big-time rollback of gasoline prices this week.

Diego Malacad, secretary-general of the United Negros Drivers and Operators Center, said yesterday the rollback still can’t be felt by the drivers as the prices of commodities continue to increase.

He said the government should instead give immediate assistance to drivers who were burdened by the high prices of fuel and commodities in the past few months.
