High Prices of Diesel and Gasoline in the Philippines
I interviewed some of my countrymen regarding the high process of petroleum products in the Philippines. This i-Report is about two people that I’ve interviewed yesterday- April 21, 2012 in Quezon City, Metro Manila. I interviewed Kris Markoff- a housewife from Quezon City. I also interviewed Rey De La Rosa- a taxi driver. Kris believes that ‘gas prices are influenced by global conditions that affect the supply and demand of petroleum products….. “Such things are beyond government’s control”, Kris asserted. De La Rosa says that ‘high gas prices prevent him from earning more because he usually encounters heavy traffic in the streets of Metro Manila and, also, prices of commodities have also increased all over the country.
Gasoline is now sold in the Philippines at around P52 to P58 per liter or roughly 1 dollar and 15 cents per liter. Diesel in the Philippines is around P44 to P47 per liter or 1 dollar per liter. Workers all over the country are now demanding wage-increase by the month of May.
My opinion is that people should now look for new sources of energy that are cheaper and cleaner than petroleum products. Cheaper sources of energy can save the world from high gas prices. Human beings should use cleaner sources of energy to curtail global warming. There are already new sources of energy out there that we people should patronize in order to save lots of money and help the cause of environmentalism. People should continue to explore and search for new energy sources that are much cheaper and cleaner than petroleum products.
