(Taguig City). Upon a declaration of a State of Calamity, the Department of Energy (DOE) is implementing a ‘price freeze’ on kerosene and household liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).
For its implementation, the DOE reminds the public of the following:
1. The price freeze is applicable for 15 days, commencing one day after the declaration;
2. “Household LPG” refers to 11 kilograms and below of LPG in cylinders;
3. Price movements for kerosene are implemented every Tuesday of the week; and,

Through the Oil Industry Management Bureau and its Field Offices, the DOE is closely coordinating with oil industry players in the implementation of the Republic Act (RA) 7581, as amended by RA 10623, which imposes a "price freeze" on these basic energy products being sold in the areas affected by the calamity.
The DOE calls on the public to be vigilant and to report any violation on the price freeze implementation to firstname.lastname@example.org or to Consumer Welfare and Promotion Office at tel. no. 479-2900 loc. 329.
