MANILA, Philippines — Local pump prices are projected to decline slightly this week after the International Energy Agency (IEA) agreed to release 60 million barrels of oil in the next six months.

Major oil companies on Monday announced a reduction in diesel and gasoline prices by P0.35 and P1 per liter, respectively.

This is the second consecutive week of rollbacks as fears over Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine were temporarily put on the back burner by IEA’s inventory release.
