Imee Marcos lambasts DTI for charcoal, kerosene price increases

Senator Imee Marcos lambasted the Department of Trade and Industry for the increases in the prices of charcoal and kerosene.

Marcos noted that a pack of charcoal now costs 15 pesos and the price per liter of kerosene is 60 pesos. The prices used to be 10 pesos and 55 pesos, respectively, she said.

“Hindi kayang bumili ng mga kababayan nating mahihirap ng LPG kaya uling o gaas ang kanilang ginagamit sa panluto… Ang P700 na tangke ng LPG ay napakamahal para sa mahihirap. Meron bang aksiyong ginagawa ang DTI sa problema ng mga kababayan nating mahihirap?,” the senator said in a statement.

She said she might be compelled to call for a Senate investigation of the DTI if it doesn’t act on the price increases.
