Project Description: "Jeepneys, a public vehicle that helps people travel to other places. Without jeepneys we would use our feet in traveling, indeed it is helpful but it is really hard. Trade is specified when the oils that are used by jeepneys can be exported to other countries. Economics is specified when we use jeepney oil that is not a cause of pollution. Jeepneys can really help what people need. Infact, jeepney fares are cheaper and affordable. It will really help going from one place to another. Using oils that are less pollution can make a big impact for every countries. The Philippines relies on transportation services, both passenger and freight, to provide connections to the regional, national, and global economy. We commute to work, go shopping, run errands, visit family and friends, and go on vacation. To do this, we travel by automobile, airplane, train, boat, bus, bicycle, jeepney and on foot. Products and services also need to be delivered from place to place. Oil, machine and electronic components, agricultural products, special deliveries, and other goods arrive by truck, train, airplane and also jeepneys.

LPG gas for jeepneys, this is a replacement for the current diesel engines powering jeepneys. LPG engine gives lower emissions as well as the lower price of the fuel compared to diesel. However the lower price of fuel we can't always be sure of, especially once people start adapting LPG mass, we might easily see a spike in the prices due to the huge demand. Every business no matter how small has to maintain records to know how healthy their business is. If you don’t know where your money came from and how you are spending it, then you don’t have a good understanding of your business. Starting a transport business can seem like a daunting task, but once you have all of the pieces in place it can be lucrative. Jeepneys are needed commodity in almost any economic situation, as there will always be individuals, groups and items that need to be transported from place to place. "
