The diesel price is expected to increase by one baht, to 31.44 baht/litre, from tomorrow, unless the Fuel Fund Executive Committee decides to absorb the increase, fully or partially.

 

At its meeting on Tuesday, the cabinet decided not to extend the one baht/litre excise tax cut for diesel, which is due to expire today. This means that the pump price of diesel will automatically rise by one baht/litre at midnight tonight.

 

Informed cabinet sources say that the Fuel Fund Executive Committee has not yet decided whether to absorb the full or half the price increase, as both options will impact the Oil Fuel Fund, which is already running at 103.6 billion baht in the red.

Many many trucks here run on Natural Gas (NGV).

Not nearly enough.  Nothing but black smoke all day every day, churned out by those dinosaur engines, burning that dinosaur fuel :coffee1:

Unfortunately the government has done their best to discourage the use of NGV by incessantly raising the price...encouraging many to switch back to subsidised dirty diesel or LPG.
