Gas is way cheaper in Davao!

Don't ask me why. Fuel is way cheaper in Davao City. I was there just this weekend and diesel costs only P26-P27 a liter. In Gensan, the same would cost around P30/L and in Koronadal P31/L. I've read somewhere that diesel in Metro Manila costs between P28-P30/L.

I forgot to take note of the prices of the other fuel products but I am sure these are lower as well. So if you are from anywhere near (e.g. Soccsksargen) and are planning to go to Davao in your car, load up just enough to get you to the city. If your car has a 60-liter fuel tank, you can save a lot when you gas up full on your return trip.

If you are coming in from Manila... take the plane :)

  1. where exactly in davao city daxi? I loaded my new itlog last friday in a gas station somewhere along toril it cost me 33/L (unleaded)...

    What car do you drive now???

  2. Yup, also in that area (Dumoy). After I gassed up at 27.11/L, I passed by a Shell station selling diesel at 26.11/L.. Did not bother looking at the prices of other types (e.g. gasoline).. So, magkano difference ng gasoline compared to Tacurong, Doc?... BTW, I now drive a handed-down pickup truck.
