The Sandugo Festival is an annual historical celebration that takes place every year in Tagbilaran City on the island of Bohol in the Philippines. This festival commemorates the Treaty of Friendship between Datu Sikatuna, a chieftain in Bohol, and Spanish conquistador Miguel López de Legazpi. This 16th-century peace treaty occurred on March 16, 1565 through a blood compact or "sandugo".

The Sandugo Festival is held every July. The Tagbilaran City Charter Day on July 1 kicks-off the month-long festival with a holy mass, diana, motorcade and program sponsored by the City Government of Tagbilaran. Among the major activities during the month is the Miss Bohol Sandugo Beauty Pageant, and the Sandugo Street Dancing Competition which is usually held on the 3rd or 4th Sunday of July, and organized by the Bohol Sandugo Foundation, Inc. (BSFI).

"The fuel prices nationwide have soared to record highs. Why is this so? When will they begin to go down?" -Allen


Global oil prices are rising primarily because of geopolitical instability following the invasion of Ukraine by Russia, the world’s top exporter of crude and other oil products combined. The hostilities have caused supply-chain disruptions, which in turn led to soaring oil prices. In late May 2022, the European Union announced that it would ban 90% of oil imports from Russia as part of economic sanctions on the country. This was expected to cause further supply issues. Although the Philippines does not directly import oil from Russia, its suppliers such as China, South Korea, and Japan do, creating a domino effect. The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and its allies agreed in early June to increase oil production by July and August and mitigate soaring prices. However, this was not seen to greatly alleviate the supply problem. As with the continuous oil price increase, it is better to drive efficiently and save.
