LPG dealers, suppliers urged to consider consumers' welfare

by T. Villavert

Iloilo City (6 February) -- The government has asked the LPG industry to keep in mind President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's appeal to the power and energy sectors to consider the welfare of consumers in the face of the worldwide economic stress.

"Malacanang appeals to the oil companies to be able to control the prices of oil commodities—gasoline and diesel.

So, a similar appeal is being made to those engaged in the LPG business," Ermita said as he stressed that "most importantly, those who are creating artificial shortage of LPG supply by hoarding or hiding this particular item from the public" are the target of the DOE and DOJ campaign.

Likewise, Ermita said the President wants to assure the public that "there is no shortage and we have adequate supply of LPG." He added that the LPG supply has started to normalize with the arrival of LPG from abroad.

Secretary Ermita also said that the Department of Energy and the Department of Justice are undertaking steps to ferret out hoarders and unscrupulous LPG dealers, the Malacanang press report disclosed.

The Malacanang press report disclosed that Petron Corp. has implemented a P4-per-kilogram increase in LPG prices effective Monday. Last week, Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corp. also increased prices of its LPG by P4 per kilogram "due to higher acquisition cost of latest LPG imports".

In Iloilo, DTI-Iloilo provincial director Wilhelm Malones disclosed in a published report that based on their monitoring the LPG supply in Panay is normal, and the quantity and time of delivery is on schedule. (PIA 6) [top]
