MANILA, Philippines — Department of Energy (DOE) has implemented a price freeze in Glan, Sarangani on household Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) and kerosene products.

This comes, after the municipality declared a state of calamity in the wake of the magnitude 6.8 earthquake that rocked the province on November 17.


“A State of Calamity (SOC) was raised in the Municipality of Glan, Sarangani due to the effects of the magnitude 6.8 earthquake in Mindanao,” DOE said in a statement on Thursday.


“Thus, a price freeze for household Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) in cylinders (11 kg and below) and kerosene products is now in effect and will remain valid for 15 days upon the declaration of the SOC,” it announced.

The price freeze began on November 21 (Tuesday) and it is being enforced until December 5 (Tuesday).

Under the price freeze, price reductions will be accepted, but price increases will be strictly prohibited.

According to Department of Health on Tuesday, there are 11 reported deaths from the quake.
