Habang nagbababa ng pamasahe sa buong mundo, Batac City nagtaas

Nagulat at nadismaya ako nang siyam na piso na ang siningil sa akin ng tricycle drayber sa Batac City kanina.  Walong piso lamang ito kahapon.

Ipinanukala ang pagtaas ng pamasahe noong kasagsagan ng pagtaas presyo ng langis.

Ngayong naibsan na ang krisis sa petrolyo at mas mababa pa sa dati ang presyo nito, bakit naman ipinagpatuloy pa rin ang pagtaas ng pamasahe?

Hindi nakatutuwa.

Naiintindihan ko ang situwasyon ng mga drayber dahil sino ba ang aayaw sa karagdagang kita sa panahon ng taghirap?  Ngunit, hindi rin naman angkop na gatasan ang mga pasahero, lalo na at mga mag-aaral at guro ang karamihan sa mga ito dahil nga nasa Batac ang pinakamalaking pamantasan sa lalawigan.

Sa Lunsod ng Laoag, walong piso pa rin ang pamasahe, at hindi naman umaangal ang mga driver.

Panahon nang umimik ang mga konsumer.

    I was about to ask: How come the gasoline prices are rolling back when the tricycle fares are increasing here in Batac? That’s a little ironic. We went to centro yesterday so we did ride a tricycle. When I gave the driver P24 (because there were three of us), the driver said in a high tone, “Ading kurang met daytoy?” We were shocked and to avoid argument we just gave him another P3. That’s not a big amount but if you try to compute, the accumulated transportation cost for 1 week would be of great amount.

    oy, napa-unfair naman yata na hindi pare-pareho ang pamasahe. Lugi ang mga taga-Batac sa lagay na iyan.

    Galing mong mag-tagalog, Herdy. Sana ikaw na lang ang sumulat sa speech ni chevylle. Para hindi niya pinaghalo ang tagalog at english sa isang pangungusap.

    9 pesos plus the best psywar you can ever experience.

  4. i like your article sir,,,,it’s time….tama nagrolback n nman kgabi ang presyo ng diesel peo mtaas prin ang pmsahe…and worst pag iisa k lng pado2ble pa ng mga tricycle driver ang pamasahe…naiintndhan ko sila peo sna huwag nman sana nila abusuhin ang mga konsumer lalo na ang mga estudyanteng kgaya ko ay mga guro….

  5. unlike kasi sa jeepneys na nationally regulated, mukhang local government lang daw ang nagre regulate nang mga trike.

    and since hindi sila normally nate-televised na katulad ng jeepneys na national ang scope, bihirang maiparating ang mga hinaing sa mga tricycle.

    oh yes yesterday when i went to the oriental store i saw”boy bawang “in a very small bag .it cost $1 so that is 45- 46 pesos. i did not look how many ounces it must be like 1-2 ounces.and yes i bought some halo halo in a jar and just added milk and ice.it does not take the place of the real one but it satisfied my cravings.

      Evans place is supported by the Department of Science and Technology. It was featured on national TV last week. 🙂 You have a very green thumb. Very admirable. Me, not into it. 🙂

    planting is so relaxing.it takes away my agressions and very rewarding.i really do not mind getting dirty and during summertime i get so dark.maybe even darker than you…i spend a lot of money buying the seedlings i donot know if it is worth it but my husband says as long as i am having fun it is worth it. it is a lot of work but i am enjoying every minute of it.

  11. tita lita

    i know it is not fun anymore if it is too much and if you do it for a living.can you imagine the poor farmers anyway?the song say “bend from morn till the set of sun, i know how that feel .remember i told you that i went to RURAL HIGH SCHOOL where it is now mmsu for freshman and we planted rice ?

    • Herdy La. Yumul

      I know farmers who still finds it fun although the have been doing it for half a century. They love their work e.

    that is why my flowers are mostly perennials once you put the bulbs in it will always come out..that is if they survive the harsh winter. i put them just so there is always blooming on the 3 sides of our house and in our fenced in yard and there is also my wildflowers.my favorites though are the morning glory and the sunflowers. i call them the “old fashioned laid back ones”my husband and son tells me i am” goofy” because i talk to my plants.it is a well known facts though that they grow better talking to them and on our back deck i have my trumpet plants and a hibiscus and a planter with a buddha and purple flowers around it. and inside the house i got a giant jade plant and my christmas cacti which are as goofy as i am because they not only bloom on christmas but they bloom like ..lent,thanksgiving or when they want to.they are as opinionated as i am..hehehe

      Talking to plants is therapeutic as well. Sometimes it is also nice to converse with someone who is an expert at listening, a lost art these days. Plants are masters at that.

  13. tita lita

    yes i talk to my plants all the time they might not answer but i know they listen.today i just bought 2 red rose bushes and a salmon colored one.

  14. tita lita

    are you an expert in listening? if you are not you will be when you are with me because there are times i talk non stop.but i talk sensibly.

  15. tita lita

    now you are not saying “bring it on”on my talking non stop…that was only a test (from the emergency broadcasting system)hehehe..gotcha

  16. tita lita

    some people have selective hearing.they only listen to what they want to hear!!!

    Naman o.. di naman ibig sabihing nag rollback ng kinagabihan automatic na magbaba din ang pamasahe.. kung kunwari nabili ng mga oil companies yung langis e papano naman yung stocks na nabili sa ganoong presyo? dinaman puwedeng babaan yun.. diba? esep esep!

  18. Jervin M. Cortez

    …..Talagang nakakdismaya ang mga driver ng tricycle sa pagtaas ng pamasahe. Lalo nilang pinahihirapan ang mga estudyante. Kailangan mabasa ang artikulong ito ng mga opissyales ng Batac para malliwanagan naman sila sa maraming nasasakal sa taas ng pamasahe. Sana sa kaisipang ito ay ibalik ang dating singil ng pamasahe.

    • Herdy La. Yumul

      On the other hand, Jervin, kakaawa din ang mga tricycle driver, antagal nilang nakapila lagi, at wala namang ibang hanapbuhay na mahanap.

  19. oo,bakit d2 lang sa batac ang mataas ang pamasahe
    kahit sa loob ng ating kampus ay mahal ang ating. sana pag sa loob ng ating kampus naman ay mas mura dahil ang building naman dito ay halos magkakalapit gaya lang ng coe to cetc. sana gumawa ng law ng ating presidente na sa pag loob ng kampus natin ay mas mababa ang ating pamasahe.

  20. xeno

    naiinis ako pag andito ako sa batac…..kasiu ang mahal ng pamasahe sa tricycle at dahil sa inis ko minsan naglalakad n lamang ako… nakacontribute pa ako ng maganda sa environment….ang pinagtataka ko nagrollback na nga ang presyo ng diesel hind pa rin bumaba ang singil ng mga driver… uhmp anokaya ang kanilng dahilan? hindi kaya mataas ang binabayaran nila? o baka naman way nila ito para tumaas pa amg income ng bayan nila at mameet na rin ang requirment para maging city na sila!!!!!!!!!!! well hindi natin alam. at sino naman kasi ang hindi maiinis sa pagkataastaas na singil sa pamsahe sir,at ang masaklap pa dodoblehin pa pamasahe mo pag mag isa ka lang… o diba super pahirap saming mga estudyante yun… ..OO mahirap ang buhay perokailangan din nila kaming iconcider na mga estudyante…. masyado na kasi silang abusado…. Bakit ano nga ba talag ang dahilan, eh mostly pa nga sa ibang lugar nagbababa ng pamasahe….

  21. gabi
