DESPITE government's assurance that there is no shortage of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), many are having a hard time buying LPG.

A long line of trucks remains at the Liquigaz plant in Bataan, waiting for supply to arrive.

Some taxi drivers in Baguio also complain. The LPG shortage has affected their job.

In areas where LPG tanks are sold, residents complain. Price for an 11 kilogram tank has risen up to P850.

“Hindi inaamin ng Department of Energy (DOE) na me problema so hindi nila ginawan ng solusyon ang problemang ito kaya umabot ito hanggang sa consumer,” said Rep. Arnel Ty of the LPG Marketers Association (LPGMA) party-list.

The DOE earlier assured households of ample LPG supply, claiming that only independent players are having troubles in supply.

“There is enough supply of LPG in the country, including Metro Manila and nearby provinces,” the department said in a statement.

The DOE said the major players have adequate supply of LPG, although some outlets encountered delivery problems because of the recent floods. (ABS-CBNnews.com with a report from the Philippine Star)
