It’s a Sunday. Palm Sunday for many Christians who trooped to catholic churches bringing along with them palm leaves. This is a Christian tradition celebrating the entry of Jesus Christ in Jerusalem.
As a Christian by faith, we do attend regular masses either on Saturday or Sunday evening. But, today, because we wanted the kids to experience religious activities, we woke up early to attend 6 am mass in the town’s parish church. As expected, the church was packed with christian devotees, we couldn’t find a seat. The youngest kid was constantly whining and eager to go home. The reason why I wouldn’t want to attend mass with kids in tow. You really couldn’t concentrate.
Waiting nearly two hours -palm leaves had be blessed by the priest- this would took another 15 minutes, then, off we went to the town’s commercial area where we asked 3 different stores for current LPG prices.
We run out of LPG two weeks ago and passed on with the refill because I couldn’t seem to EAT OFF its price. It was 720 pesos for the regular LPG tank. For those with Shellane or Petron tanks, it goes even higher. For two weeks, we monitor prices on the news, patiently waiting if there would be a rollback especially if international fuel prices goes down. And, oh, yes, it does gets lower…by only few pesos per kilogram.
It seems, LPG prices, the same way with pump prices wouldn’t decreased in price the way we, consumers expected it to be. As of today, blaring on the news was that an LPG should be priced at 659.50 pesosper tank.
That’s not likely the price here in our place. It remains at 690 pesos. Only 30 pesos shy off from two week’s 720 pesos price.
We still didn’t buy one. Anyways, we still have another spare tank. Which in December cost only 500 pesos per 9 kilogram cylinder.
But, I am afraid, we will need to have that spare empty tank refilled sooner before the other one runs out.
I am still waiting for miracle. A huge rollback
