DEPARTMENT of Energy (DOE) Secretary Alfonso G. Cusi’s efforts to work with oil industry players in coming up with measures to help curb inflation are paying off.

Public utility jeepneys (PUJs) may now enjoy an additional discount of 25 centavos (P0.25) per liter of diesel fuel at strategically located Shell retail stations. This development is an outcome of the 20 August meeting called by the Energy Secretary with oil companies to discuss ways to help unburden consumers amidst rising prices.

Said discount extended by Shell is over and above the Php 1 to 2 discount being availed by public utility vehicles under the Memorandum of Understanding of the DOE with Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corporation, Petron Corporation and Phoenix Petroleum Philippines, Inc., which was signed on 1 March 2018.

“We thank Pilipinas Shell for continuously supporting our efforts to fight inflation. As commodity prices continue to rise, finding immediate remedial measures to help our consumers is of utmost importance,” Sec. Cusi said.

The additional discount can be availed of in 446 Shell stations in areas with a high PUJ density. These stations are strategically located in Metro Manila, North Luzon, South Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

Sec. Cusi added that the DOE is hopeful that other oil companies will follow suit. “We will work together to find win-win solutions,” he said.

The DOE continues to assure the public that it will not waver in upholding consumer welfare, as well as in determining equitable solutions to address social challenges.|#BALIKAS_News
