CDO orders gasoline dealers to freeze prices of gasoline, diesel

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, Jan. 19 (PIA) – The city council here directed an explanation from gasoline dealers for non-compliance of standing order of the state of national calamity in view of the disaster brought by tropical storm ‘Sendong.’

The Office of the President, on Dec. 20, 2012, issued Proclamation No. 303 putting the entire city under the state of national calamity, following the killer flashfloods that devastated the city on December 17.

In a recent forum held in the city, sponsored by the Department of Energy (DOE), Energy Undersecretary Jose Layug said that the department has a standing order excluding the cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan from the coverage of rounds of increases in the prices of petroleum products in view of the disaster brought by ‘Sendong,’ until after the lifting of the declaration.

Yet, days after Undersecretary Layug made the announcement, local gasoline dealers implemented oil price hikes to the dismay of the public, especially the motorists.

Hence, the order demanding an explanation from local gasoline dealers for their utter disregard of the DOE standing order. (PIA-10)
