Anyone who drives a car or motorcycle in Thailand has noticed the same thing. Driving has become expensive! Every month it seems like gas prices are higher. In the months and years to come, it is not going to get any better. Cheap gas (petrol) is never returning to Thailand.
The days of cheap LPG/NGV are ending soon too. The Thai government cannot afford to continue subsidizing these alternative fuels. The price of LPG and NGV also will increase because more people want to use these fuels and they are growing scarce.
Are you ready for higher electricity bills? You should be. Electricity is powered in Thailand by natural gas and coal. These resources also are becoming scarce and more expensive. In addition, the Thai Government cannot afford to continue subsidizing electricity like it has in the past.
That is the bad news. The good news is that you can save energy and money! Saving money is just like earning money—but it’s a lot easier. You may think that doing something small won’t make much difference. But little things build into big things. Saving a few baht here, and a few baht there, soon adds up to thousands of baht. If you have a Thai business, your savings could add up to tens or hundreds of thousands of baht!
