Thailand imported an average 819,000 barrels of fuel per day in September, down 7.1% from August, at a total cost of 85.17 billion baht, Department of Energy Business director general Viraphol Jirapraditkul said on Wednesday.
Mr Viraphol said the drop in imports was the result of lower fuel consumption.
Of the total amount, crude oil accounted for 735,000 barrels per day, down 7.7% from August, worth 78.34 billion baht. The country also imported 83,000 barrels of refined petrol per day, down 2.1%, at a cost of 6.83 billion baht.
