I think we’ll be having bread for breakfast, lunch and dinner tomorrow. That’s because we ran out of LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) today, and the supplier said they had already ran out of stock of our brand (M-Gas) since last week, and there’s no way to predict when supplies will be coming in.
I haven’t kept abreast of local and international news lately, but I needed to check if this problem will last long.
According to GMA News.TV, “The supply of cooking gas remains tight for small retailers even as the Energy Department’s inspection has so far cleared some suppliers from allegations of hoarding.”
Liquefied Petroleum Gas Marketers Association (LPGMA) President Arnel U. Ty said in a phone interview that the supply situation is expected to ease on Saturday with the influx of LPG imports.
It was earlier reported that there was no LPG shortage, and the problem was actually with the distribution of the supplies.
I hope our LPG supplier is not one of those guilty of hoarding, or else!
