These reflect movements in the international oil market, according to the oil companies.
Last February 13, the price of gasoline had gone down by P1 per liter, diesel by P1.30 per liter, and kerosene by 85 centavos per liter.
Before these two consecutive rollbacks, oil firms had increased pump prices for 6 straight weeks, due to higher imported fuel prices and excise tax. – Rappler.com
