Philippine Tidbits - No Fuel No Food

If you happen to own a car or any vehicle being run by a gasoline, you will surely panic with the present scenario . There is an artificial shortage of the said fuel in the locality mostly in the Greater Manila Area,Philippines. The big three (3) Petron, Shell and Caltex are rationing their stocks to retailers of their choices. They hoard fuel due to the price freeze being enforced by the government. Although they deny that hoarding is done, they fail to supply substantial amount of gasoline to dealers.

With these, Senator Enrile made a speculation that continues artificial gas shortage will cause riot due to lack of food. Transporting of food, commodities and other basic needs of man is slower which will mean shortage of food in the bottom line.
