The new government decided on Saturday to delay their collection of oil funds causing an unbelievable decrease in benzene and diesel prices that led to people flocking to the gas stations who have had to order thousands of extra liters of petrol to keep up with demand.
One petrol station manager stated that benzene 95 had dropped in price by 8.02 baht; 91 benzene by 7.17 baht and diesel by 3 baht, however there was no reduction in the price of gasohol.
He told our reporters that they ordered an additional 20,000 liters to deal with the queues.
One driver stated that he normally spends 1,300 baht to fill his tank and that the decrease had saved him nearly 200 baht.
For once petrol prices go down.
