According to Rodela Romero, director of the DOE-OIMB, this week’s price increases is due to “escalating conflict in the Middle East, with more attacks on Gaza,” as well as shipping issues in the Red Sea.

All three petroleum products increased by P0.10 per liter last week.

This resulted in a net decrease of P0.25 per liter for diesel and P1.30 per liter for kerosene.
