Taxi drivers on Sunday announced they will hold a rally at the Royal Plaza to demand remedial measures from the government when the price of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) in the transport sector is floated at the beginning of next month.
About 400-500 members of the Network of Taxi Operators are expected to show up at the Royal Plaza Monday.
“The network does not want to oppose the plan to float the LPG price, but the government should come up with some remedial measures to help affected operators. For example, the government launched energy credit cards to help taxi drivers using natural gas for vehicles (NGV) so that they received a 2-baht discount per kilo,” a statement from the network said.
