SORSOGON Gov. Francis Joseph "Chiz" Escudero urged the government to reconsider its order for employees of business process outsourcing (BPO) centers to return to their offices by April 1 because of the skyrocketing cost of fuel.

"At first, Covid-19 was our enemy — and the threat of the virus is still there — but now the weekly increase in oil prices and the looming rise in commodity prices seem to be a bigger threat," Escudero said.
