TAGBILARAN CITY—Boholano drivers and residents felt the pain as the oil prices increased on Tuesday, March 15.

Motorists queued Monday evening in a gasoline station in this city, a few hours before the oil price hike was to take effect.

Junjun Mendoza, 37, who runs a carinderia along Dr. Cecilio Putong Street in Tagbilaran, patiently waited for his turn.

“I am hoping I could save because everything is expensive. I need to buy gas because it is very necessary,” said Mendoza, who had just paid P200 at a Petron station along CPG Avenue.
