Oil firms cut gasoline, diesel prices

/ 05:33 AM November 13, 2018

Local oil companies have slashed pump prices by as much as P2.50 a liter as the international supply situation stoked fears of another price crash similar to what happened in 2014.

Shell, Seaoil, PTT, Eastern, Flying V and Caltex announced reductions of P2 per liter of diesel and P2.30 per liter of gasoline, effective 6 a.m. on Tuesday.


Phoenix Petroleum made the biggest price cut for gasoline of P2.50.

Shell, Seaoil, Flying V and Caltex reduced prices of kero-sene by P1.85 per liter.


These were the biggest price cuts over the past five weeks.

The price of diesel has gone down by a total of P5.05 and that of gasoline by P7.50 per liter.

Increased output

Analysts attributed the slump to a move among crude oil producers, led by Saudi Arabia, to increase output last month.

This interrupted a concerted move to reduce output that was implemented in late 2016. —Ronnel W. Domingo
