I wonder what he means by "world diesel price" - average of retail prices worldwide?

The price of Brent or WTI crude is now below $110 and was never higher than about $140........is the additional cost of refining diesel that much?

I think the plan was to raise it 2 baht per month, from 30 baht, with a 35 baht cap. So 32-34-35.
