Ifugao Town Establishes Own Gas Filling Station

(24Oct2011 by: ifugao posts)
"If others can, so do I" is an expression to encourage someone. Perhaps this should also be applied in the perspective of the organization. Being self-sufficient should be a mandate given the arguments of cost-cutting measures, price gouging, and freedom of choice.

With the objective of bringing affordable services for public interest, other agencies can, and will possibly replicate this endeavor.
