Just in time for another price hike.

(SPOT.ph) Filipino motorists had to endure long lines at gas stations as fuel prices increased early in the week—with the latest reports saying prices could  eventually skyrocket to P100 per liter. And with the continuous hikes, most, if not all of the Filipinos itching to go out in an Alert-Level-1 world, are staying home. While we pray to whatever deity (or government official) for costs to go down, chances are we're slated to experience a more price jumps soon; sucks for anyone that doesn't have an unlimited fuel supply (a.k.a. everyone except Hidilyn Diaz). Lucky for you, dear reader, we found an app that might just help you survive the hikes.

This mobile app can help you lock in gas prices for future use:

Pricelocq touts itself as the first Philippine-developed mobile app that lets you purchase gas at locked-in prices. Think, "prepaid" gas that you can consume at a later date. So how does it work?

The app allows you to cash in and purchase fuel (yes, even past your tank's capacity) with the current date's price. In the event that you need to gas up and the prices are way too intense, you can "redeem" your prepaid gas—essentially saving you money. Just note that as of this writing, SeaOil is the sole affiliated partner brand of the app. 

Pricelocq is available on iOS and Android.
