with defective permits


A random inspection of gasoline stations in Bacolod City was conducted yesterday by a task force led by Bacolod Vice Mayor Jude Thaddeus Sayson to check the accuracy of the calibration of pumping machines of gasoline stations in the city.

Sayson said they inspected the gasoline stations of Seaoil, Caltex, Petron, Shell, Pryce Gas, and Jetti, all in Barangay Villamonte, and found the business permits of three gasoline stations defective.

There was one gasoline station selling Liquified Petroleum Gas, which was not included in its business permit, so the operator was advised to rectify it since the deadline for payment of business permits has been extended up to March 31, he said.moremoremore
