Two delivery riders and a working student are building their dreams as grand prize winners of SEAOIL’s Lifetime Free Gas (LFG) promo this year. Luzon winner Jomar Alluag, Visayas winner Jason Deposoy, and Mindanao winner Jenreel Alger are celebrating winning a lifetime’s supply of free gas in different ways.
After losing his job at the beginning of the pandemic, Alluag, 34, became a Grab delivery rider. Working about 10 hours a day with up to 18 deliveries, Alluag provides for his family and sends support to his parents in the province when he can. Now with the huge gas savings, Alluag plans to build a new home for his family.
“Napakalaking tulong ng pagkapanalo ko ng Lifetime Free Gas para sa pamilya ko kasi hindi na mababawasan ang kinikita ko. Diretso ko nang maiuuwi yung pang-gas ko doon sa pamilya ko,” he said. (Winning the Lifetime Free Gas is a huge help to my family since my income will not be reduced. I can now bring home my gas savings and use it for my family.)
Deposoy, 28, works as a FoodPanda rider making up to 20-30 deliveries each day across Dumaguete City. The former security guard feels he can now build a secure future for his daughter’s education and is overjoyed by his win.
“Napakalaking tulong ito sa araw-araw naming pang-gastos kasi ang laki ng nilalaan kong budget para sa gas lang. Ngayon, mas malaki na yung matitipid ko sa premyong ito,” he said. (It’s a huge help to our daily expenses since I use a big budget just for gas. With this prize, I can really make huge savings.)
Alger, 21, a self-employed working student in Lanao del Norte drives a car for land trips to Iligan and Cagayan de Oro. Now in his third year as a BS Criminology student, Alger is eager to finish college and work full-time to support their household. He and his brother were raised by their fraternal grandparents. With his win, he’s planning to take his grandparents on road trips, and support their needs in the long-term.
“‘Nung nalaman kong nakasama ako sa grand prize winners, hindi ako makapaniwala at sobrang natuwa ako. Malaking tulong sa akin ang pagkapanalo ng Lifetime Free Gas, lalo na sa pang-gastos sa araw-araw kasi palagi akong nagpapa-gas,” said Alger. (When I learned I was among the grand prize winners, I couldn’t believe it. It’s a huge help to win the Lifetime Free Gas promo, especially with all our expenses. I’m always gassing up).
SEAOIL’s fifth year for LFG has been its biggest yet, with grander prizes. Three more winners got one-year’s supply of free gas, four winners received motorcycle packages, and 75 winners nationwide won ₱3,000-worth of gas vouchers.
