MANILA, Philippines — There will be a big-time roll back in the prices of all fuel products by next week, the Department of Energy (DOE) said on Friday.

“May malakihang rollback tayo next week on all products … 5-6 (pesos per) liter,” Department of Energy-Oil Industry Management Bureau Director Rino Abad told INQUIRER.net in a text message.

Abad said this is due to the effects of lockdown in Shanghai, China, with interest hikes by various countries and threat of recession that could cause demand alteration.
