Eastern Petroleum Philippines, an independent oil player, would also cut its pump prices by the same levels and would also be effective 12:01 a.m. today.
Meanwhile, another independent player, Flying V Philippines began the wave of significant rollbacks at past midnight Sunday as it reduced P0.60 per liter on diesel and P0.35 per liter on premium gasoline.
According to local oil firms the announced cutbacks on their respective fuel prices, marked the companies’ eighth collective price rollbacks in as many weeks.
