There is a nationwide strike today. Almost all jeepney drivers did not drive their jeepney today. They are doing this to indulge their petition to increase the fare in response to the increasing gasoline prices. As result passengers today find difficulty in looking for a public vehicle to ride on so that they could be able to reach their destinations on time. Some schools declared a holiday but still almost every corner are jammed pack with passengers waiting for a jeepney. I am very lucky that I was able to ride easily amidst the shortage of jeepneys. Hope the government could find a solution in this issue so that there will be no more nationwide strike that affects the public.
