Not wanting to mess up the "Rising cost of dining" I made this thread because of two items I read in the last two days: 1. "LPG prices rising for the 4th month in a row": "In separate advisories, Petron and Phoenix LPG Phils. Inc. increased LPG prices by PHP3.25 per kilogram. Solane-branded LPG also hiked prices by PHP3.27 per kilogram starting at 6 a.m. Friday [April 1st]. The new price adjustments reflect increments ranging from PHP35.75 to PHP35.97 for a regular 11-kilogram LPG cylinder. According to the Department of Energy, prices of 11-kilogram LPG tank range between PHP880 and PHP1,100." [Not sure if this price is for Manila only because I bought 11kg a few days ago and it cost PHP 1189 - but perhaps the delivery cost and the fact it is not Manila accounts for that]. (Source: PNA) My record: Sept 2020 Php840; June 2021 Php915; Nov 2021 Php1132; Mar 2022 Php1189. This is an increase from Sept 2020 to March 2022 (before the increase in April) of about 41.5%. 2. Metro Dumaguete Water will be increasing prices by Php32 per cubic meter from June. As an example they give a new price for consumers using 0 to 10 cubic meters (prices rise per m3 as usage increases, to benefit the poor) of currently Php150 to "only" Php202 - if my math is correct that is an increase of about 35%. Quite a neat use of the word "only" (although have to admit water is really cheap here compared with the UK). As water is used for commercial purposes (and their rate is higher) then this should feed through to more inflation in other products and services.
