Kilusang Mayo Uno – Metro Manila
Quezon City May 21, 2018

Militant labor group, Kilusang Mayo Uno – Metro Manila led a protest rally at a gasoline station in Quezon City today as giant oil companies already announced that a new ‘big-time’ oil price hike is set to be implemented this week.

Citing news reports, KMU Metro Manila said that prices of gasoline will increase to P1.50-P1.60 per liter, diesel to P1.00 – P1.10 per liter and P0.85-P0.95 per liter. According to the group, series of weekly oil price adjustments since January 2018 shoot up diesel prices by P8.95, gasoline by P8.07 and kerosene by P9.21.
