Unioil estimated the price of diesel to increase by 80 centavos to P1 per liter and gasoline by 20 to 40 centavos per liter.

Diesel might go up by 80 centavos to P1 per liter and kerosene by 85 to P1 per liter.

Last week, oil companies jacked up the prices of petroleum products by as much as P1.55 per liter.
