About 300 members of the United Negros Drivers Operators Center called on the government to regulate and managethe oil industry again to stop what they called abusive price increases at a rally in front of the Fountain of Justice at Araneta Street in Bacolod City yesterday.

The group also called for the immediate abolition of the Downstream Oil Deregulation Law and for the removal of the expanded value-added tax on oil products.

UNDOC secretary general Jesse Ortega said the law has been abused by big oil companies and corporations and that has led to the suffering of the drivers and the entire nation, especially the marginalized sector.moremoremore
