Shell gives fuel discounts to frontliners
Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corp. is offering fuel discounts to COVID-19 frontliners.
Under its Project Bayanihan, Shell said it is giving P3.00 per liter reduction in gasoline and P2.00 per liter discount at its 151 retail stations in Luzon and Visayas.
The discount offer is for all health workers, police and military personnel, and logistics drivers “at the forefront of the COVID-19 efforts.”
Apart from fuel discount, Shall is also providing free fuel to district partner hospitals and three transport companies to aid in the transportation of frontliners, the mobilization of ambulances, and other ongoing relief efforts.
Each district partner, along with the Bonifacio Global City Bus service, has been given P10,000 per week for the next two weeks.
Moreover, bus services such as Ube Express and Vallacar Transit’s Ceres buses have each been given P30,000 and P100,000 respectively for the same period.
Shell said its initiatives at its retail stations are part of the company’s larger effort to help maintain the Philippines’ mobility, health and safety, and energy security. — Ted Cordero/RSJ, GMA News
