Chevron raises pump prices while we suffer

While the Northern parts of our country suffers in agony over this natural catastrophe, Chevron raises its pump prices of gasoline and kerosene by 25 and 50 cents respectively. 


I don't know about you, but this act is definitely one of the most deplorable and sickening thing I have ever witnessed in my entire life.


Chevron and the rest of these giant oil companies have been getting a lot of monies from us. They are getting billions of dollars from us. And they have the gall to raise prices at a time when we most need help.


Chevron's heart is as black as that gooey liquid they are selling. Imagine, at least 3,000 families are now suffering from the brunt of Typhoon Megi and here you are, an oil giant, raising your pump prices. 


Is this economic sabotage or what? I mean, come on!


These oil giants did it at the height of Typhoon Ondoy. When everybody's licking their wounds from the devastation wrought by the typhoon, these oil companies raised their fuel prices. And they are doing it again now. 


Government must interfere. Government must stomp their feet down. Pnoy must not let companies capitalize from our misery.
