Songkran demand on petrol down

- +

Consumption of petrol and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) dropped slightly last month as the political impasse continued to drag on, the Energy Business Department said yesterday. 

Director-general Somnuk Bamrungsalee said petrol consumption edged down by 0.9% last month to an average of 22.7 million litres per day from 22.9 million a year earlier.

"Normally a high volume of petrol is used during April's long Songkran holiday because people really travel a lot. However, this year demand dropped," said Mr Somnuk.
