A few weeks back, I realized that Davao City's fare has increased merely by 50 cents to a total of P7.50 for the first 4 kilometers. Yesterday, I was surprised by the news on television and even newspaper headlines that effective Friday, which is tomorrow, there will be another 50 cents increase amounting to P8.00 pesos as the regular fare in PUJs. Taxi fares will also be increased. Seems like everything concerning money matters is increasing including prices of commodities, utility bills, and fares! Whoa, sounds like it's hard to be budgeting financially these days. Hahayz, lisud na jud ang kinabuhi karon!
