‘Pag tumaas ‘yung oil tataas talaga lahat, bitayin mo man ako: Duterte

Politics & Governance

President Rodrigo Duterte said on February 11 he cannot do anything with increasing prices of commodities because they are tied with oil price.

“Alam mo ngayon wala tayong oil so every time tataas ‘yung oil, automatic tataas lahat ‘yan. ‘Yan hindi natin ma – Eh even if you hang me, wala tayong magawa, bitayin mo man ako ‘pag tumaas ‘yung oil tataas talaga ‘yung presyo because everything that you see is a product of oil,” he said.

” ‘Yung mga makina, ‘yung jeep mismo, ito ginagamit ko, steel, sahig, lahat ito silya ninyo it’s all oil,” he said. ” Kasi hindi magagawa ‘yan kung wala ‘yung makinarya.”

“And that machine or equipment runs ang binabahog diyan oil para umandar para gumagawa ng ganito. Lahat wiring, aluminum, oil lahat ‘yan. Ngayon ibinigay ng Diyos sa Indonesia, ibinigay sa Malaysia, ibinigay sa Brunei pero wala sa atin,” he added.


“Tayo ‘pag increase wala tayong buffer, walang reserba pangsagang, pang-cover natin. So pagtaas niyan, taas lahat. Brunei, Malaysia, Indonesia pwede nilang sabihin na huwag muna tutal meron tayong sarili domestic atin so mapigilan natin ‘yung pagbigla-biglang pagtaas ng lahat ng presyo,” he explained.
