For a long time, fuel in Cagayan de Oro is more expensive than in other cities particularly Manila. But in the last couple of months, the prices of fuel went down to the delight of motorists. But do you know the city’s fuel is now much cheaper than in Manila?
Shown above is a comparison of two Gas Stations. These photos were taken separately last week before the latest reduction. On the left is Petron Vamenta Blvd – Ilaya branch in Carmen with Diesel (P29.70), Xtra Advance (P31.65) and XCS (32.40). At right is Total Gas Station along Quirino Avenue in Pasay City showing Diesel (P30.15), Premier (P43.45) and Excellium (P44.95). The disparity is glaring – a difference of more than P10/liter for gasoline. Prices for diesel are however somewhat on the same range.
