Well, it was good while it lasted. In some sad news to start the week, the fuel price rollbacks we’ve enjoyed for the past 3 weeks will finally have its streak broken. Tomorrow, November 28, a split in adjustments will be applied; the price of diesel is again set to go up, with gasoline – luckily (?) – having no movement. Diesel goes up by a minimal PHP 0.30 per liter.
Diesel fuel prices go up again after a 3-week rollback streak
Yes, all good things must come to an end, and that includes consecutive fuel price reductions for the past 3 weeks. Depending on the brand, stations will be updating their pump prices tomorrow, albeit at different times, to reflect a rise in prices per liter. As mentioned, expect diesel to be more expensive by PHP 0.30 with gas prices remaining the same as last week.
Again, different players will adjust prices at varied times, but the first changes will be applied as the clock strikes 12:00 AM. A good number of brands do give a bit of reprieve for their customers, though, and implement the fuel price changes a bit later in the morning at 6:00 AM. The latest to do so will be Cleanfuel, as its common practice. It will reflect the new prices at 4:01 PM.
There’s no escaping the unpredictability of petroleum product prices, and while this is sad indeed, it should also be expected. To lighten our moods, here are some things we’ve found that some people practice in the belief that they are saving more fuel, but in fact, are not. The holidays are fast approaching and with it, horrendous traffic, so saving as much fuel as we can becomes a little bit more important during these times.
A fuel price hike isn’t welcome news, but the silver lining is that it’s not as bad as other increases that went up as much as PHP 4.00 per liter, right?
Yes, that’s a silver lining, indeed.
