Pattaya drivers top up on cheap gas, but may pay higher price later

PATTAYA: -- The government’s move to cut oil-subsidy taxes is fueling a petrol party in Pattaya, with drivers racing to top off tanks and gas station owners ordering new shipments with baht signs in their eyes.

Attempting to fulfill a campaign pledge to reduce the nation’s cost of living, Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra reduced the Oil Fund levy on diesel fuel and octane-91 and octane-95 gasoline, immediately slicing the price for gas by as much as 8 baht per liter. With the government saying the move is just temporary, motorists sped to the nearest pump to stock up.

i filled with diesel on sunday night at petronas and it was 26.99 a litre

i refilled today and it was 27.54

its already on the way up

.55 baht a litre in 5 days.........

i liked it better when i knew it was going to be 29.99 every time

it only needs another major arab oil producer to have an unrest problem and diesel will be 40/50/60 baht a litre without the Oil Fund Buffer

and let's not forget most of these reds (many now politicians) couldn't make any money from rice picking, let alone run a countries finances............
