Upcoming P6.30 fuel increase ‘end of the road’ for jeepney drivers?

Jeepney drivers in Sta. Monica Commonwealth extension in Novaliches, Quezon City conduct a maintenance check on their vehicles on Sunday. June 05, 2022.

Before drivers claim, they used to go home with P400 earnings from a day-long plying their routes but now they could barely make P150 due to the high cost of diesel fuel.

And that can actually vanish amid a staggering P6.30 per liter increase on diesel as announced by oil companies effective this coming week. A P2.50 increase per liter of gasoline is also expected to be imposed starting Tuesday next week.
