MANILA, Philippines — Oil companies implemented a price rollback on petroleum products on Tuesday (January 28).

Diesel enjoyed a price cut of 40 centavos per liter; while gasoline had a rollback of 30 centavos per liter.

Meanwhile, the Liquefied Petroleum Gas Marketers’ Association (LPGMA) Partylist expects the price of LPG to go down in February.

LPGMA Partylist Representative Arnel Ty said the increase in the price of LPG on January 1 was a normal movement on its pricing due to the holiday season.

He added, however, that a rollback will happen February as a next normal occurrence in oil pricing.

“Definitely, there will be a rollback,” Ty said.

The oil players also confirmed the big-time rollback for LPG next month.

On February 1, a price cut of about four to six pesos will be applied per kilo of LPG.

This means a P44 to P66 price reduction per 11-kilogram tank. — (from the report of Asher Cadapan, Jr.) /mbmf

MANILA, Philippines – The price of gasoline will have a price rollback of P1.45 per liter this week, according to industry players.

Meanwhile, a P0.60 per liter price cut for diesel and a P1 cut per liter for kerosene also takes effect.

So far, the oil companies that already advised on price cuts include Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corporation, Seaoil, PetroGazz, PTT Philippines, Total, Chevron and Unioil effective on Tuesday (October 1).

Cleanfuel on Sunday (September 29) have already rolled back its prices by P1.50 per liter for gasoline and P0.50 per liter for diesel.

Meanwhile, an additional P4 to P5 per kilogram increase in the price of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) will also be imposed.

The effect of the price increase, however, is yet to manifest in retail markets, according to oil companies.

With this, the pick-up price of cooking fuel will have an additional P44 to P55 per 11-kilogram cylinder.

The price adjustments come on the heels of the drone attacks on two large oil facilities of Saudi Aramco which specifically affected the price of Dubai crude and prompted global oil prices to soar to over US$67 per barrel.
