Gasoline prices up 50¢ per liter due to Russia export ban

/ 10:11 AM March 04, 2024

MANILA, Philippines  The pump price of gasoline will climb by P0.50 per liter on Tuesday, March 5, following Russia’s implementation of a six-month export ban.

Meanwhile, the price per liter of diesel and kerosene will go down by P0.40 and P0.35, respectively, according to local oil firms.

Shell and Seaoil will implement the price adjustments by 6 a.m. while CleanFuel will adjust its prices at 4:01 p.m.


The Department of Energy Oil Industry Management Bureau attributed the increase in gasoline prices to Russia’s export ban that became effective on March 1.


S&P Global explained that the ban was meant to “safeguard” Moscow’s domestic supply in anticipation of high demand in the coming months.
