CEBU CITY, Philippines — Fuel prices increased by more than P1 per litter in the last week of December 2023.

CDN Digital checked pump prices in six gasoline stations in Cebu City and recorded an increase of at least P1.60 per liter of gasoline and P1.70 per liter of diesel.

Kerosene also increased by at least P1.54 per liter.

The price adjustments took effect on Tuesday, December 26.

Last week, the Department of Energy (DOE) said that the increase in the price of diesel could be a result of possible output cuts by major oil exporters and the US International Energy Agency’s (IEA) upgrade of its demand forecast.

In a report by, DOE said that last week, oil firms’ avoidance of the red sea incurred additional cost as companies were forced to reroute their tankers.

“The Yemen’s Houthi rebels have scared off some of the world’s top shipping companies and oil giants, effectively rerouting global trade away from a crucial artery for consumer goods and energy supplies that is expected to trigger delays and rising prices,” DOE said.

In the previous week, diesel was up by 10 centavos per liter and kerosene was down by 85 centavos per liter, with no price adjustment for gasoline.
