The United Negros Drivers Operators Center, the largest transport organization in the province, is mulling to seek fare adjustments following the increase in fuel prices anew yesterday.
Diego Malacad, its secretary general, said they were supposed to meet yesterday but decided to seek the help of the cities and town mayors instead for the conduct of dialogue for the planned fare adjustments.
In separate advisories yesterday, Caltex, Cleanfuel, Petro Gazz, Seaoil, and Shell will increase gasoline prices by PHP0.40 per liter and PHP0.60 per liter on diesel prices. Kerosene prices at Caltex, Seaoil, and Shell will also go up by PHP0.70 per liter.
Other oil firms are expected to hike the costs of their fuel. Year-to-date, price adjustments of fuel products stood at PHP12.45 per liter increase for gasoline, PHP9.35 per liter increment on diesel, and PHP7.40 per liter hike on kerosene prices.
For the past three weeks, there were rollbacks in diesel and kerosene prices.*with report from PNA
