Even us commuters feel the gas price hike because of the increasing fares. When I was in college, I jokingly remarked that there will come a time that jeepney fares will be 10 pesos. Back in those days, the fare was around 5 pesos.
Look at us now: Php 8.50 for the average 4-kilometer jeepney fare!?! That totally sucks! I don't cuss, but I can feel my blood boil with the ongoing rate. I miss my elementary days when it was just Php 1.50. Imagine that!!!
Woe to humanity.
