Gasoline prices will be slashed by 70 centavos per liter, diesel will be rolled back by 95 centavos per liter while kerosene will be cut by P1.10 per liter.

The decrease in prices were announced by local oil companies today, Monday, February 26, in separate advisories.

Shell and Seaoil will implement the rollbacks by 6 a.m. on Tuesday.
