Militant groups hit soaring oil prices

Militant groups led by Gabriela staged on Thursday (28 Oct 2021) a protest rally at a gasoline station in Metro Manila as they denounced soaring prices of fossil fuel that saw, yet again, another price uptick per liter for the ninth (9th) consecutive week.

From January 2021 to the present, the increase in oil prices has gone up to at least P20 per liter of gasoline, P18.45 per liter of diesel, and P16.05 per liter of kerosene.

In Metro Manila, the price of gasoline per liter now sells at P65 per liter while in nearby provinces like Batangas the price is lower by at least seven pesos (P7).
