DOE helps mitigate fuel price hikes
by DOE release

The Department of Energy is exploring all options to mitigate rising fuel prices, and called for the practice of fuel efficiency measures.

Department of Energy Sec. Alfonso G. Cusi said that the agency is exhausting all options to mitigate rising fuel prices and called for the practice of fuel efficiency measures.

“Despite global forces affecting the country’s fuel prices, we are in constant communication with oil industry players on how we can help the public amid the global oil situation,” DOE Sec. Alfonso Cusi said.

“We’ve been exploring higher and expanded fuel discounts to public utility vehicles, looking at nearby countries for lower priced supply and even went to unpopular options to ensure that consumers are protected from the impact of this global price situation.”

Based on oil consumption data, the Philippines is a net importer of oil products. This means that the country’s fuel supply is generally sourced from abroad, making us vulnerable to changes in international oil price markets.

In the meantime, the DOE advised the public that when buying petroleum products, look for the best quality, price, and service and fill up when their gas tank is already half-full.

Consumers should also buy gasoline during the coolest time of the day (early morning or evening) and compare the price on the dispensing pump with the “Price Display Board” displayed to ensure price match.

Consumers should also make sure the pump dials are reset to zero before you allow the gas attendant to start dispensing gas, check to see that the price per liter remains the same throughout the pumping process and check your vehicle manual to ensure that the petroleum product being used is appropriate.

They should also ask for and check the official receipt of the sold fuel products for this will serve as proof of purchase in case problems would arise after the purchase
When using petroleum products, the DOE advised the public to plan their trip, including the number of passengers, route and traffic considerations; turn off all power-consuming accessories before turning off the ignition; and avoid idling for more than 30 seconds.

Observe and maintain speed limit in order to anticipate stops and ensure safety, adjust driving habits to changing road conditions, accelerate slowly on gravel or slippery roads, take advantage of rolling resistance rather than heavy braking to help slow you down. This deceleration technique is one of the best for fuel-saving methods.

Motorists should also avoid unnecessary steering wheel movement or swerving since each sideward movement of the tire causes fuel-consuming drag, avoid tailgating, for this reduces your chances for planning economic modes of driving and remember that revving the engine just before turning off the ignition costs extra fuel and may cause engine damage.
