MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Senator Grace Poe is calling for a Senate Hearing on the exhorbitant prices of San Mig Light, particularly in bars, restaurants and hotels.
Next to rice, San Mig Light is probably one of the most sought-after basic commodities among Filipinos.
A bottle of the popular beer costs about P32 in groceries and retail stores. But San Mig Light costs as much as P60 in bars and restaurants, and we’re not even talking about 5-Star Hotels.
”It is my duty to protect consumers, especially potential voters for my re-election, from price gauging and other unfair business practices. This must stop, and I pledge to take this all the way to the prosecution of the guilty parties,” Poe told The Adobo Chronicles.
Well, we’ll drink to that!
