Oil Cartel

Here we go again. The oil cartel in the country is imposing another round of oil price hikes which stirred all sectors. OPH shakes all basic commodities to go up making life for a family of six even harder. Who cares whether or not this oil price increase is valid or not? There is no valid reason whatsoever to starve to death your own people. Is there?

The quick response of the government to this issue was to audit these oil firms (cartoon dialogue: this is too much, I will have you audited!). Nice try. I give you a failing mark or "itlog (egg actually but means 'zero" score). And then, GMA harped on the plans to tap alternative fuel or energy sources. Just do it asap and try if you can sincerely extend support to our local inventors to the fullest. For instance, the use of water as fuel, is it not worthy for support from the government? What it is so far doing to develop such technology?

I know fully well that these are just promises which are made to know what I mean.
