Diesel Rollback

The P1.50 diesel rollback is a welcome relief. Yes, it's a measly amount. Yes, the price was rolled back after the oil companies increased the diesel prices by P3. But it's better than nothing, right?

So I don't understand why some groups are still criticizing the move. A slash on prices is a slash on prices. It's not as if the oil companies are artificially inflating the prices. There is a real increase in fuel prices that each and everyone of us must endure.

As to the claim in an Inquirer report that "MalacaƱang will, of course, take credit for the so-called rollback since it desperately wants to score brownie points just before Arroyo delivers her Sona," who cares, really? Who will believe her anyway?
