Seaoil, Petron, Shell, PTT, Total, Cleanfuel announced their price adjustment Monday afternoon. Cleanfuel, meanwhile said it would adjust its pump prices at 8:01 a.m.

Other oil firms are expected to follow suit.

The latest round of oil price rollback reflects movement in the world oil market. Seaoil said the price rollback for gasoline is lower than that of diesel because “there’s an increase in import premiums related to freight and refining.”

Last week, gasoline prices went down by P0.90 per liter and kerosene by P0.10 per liter.
