PTT, Bangchak freeze pump prices

PTT reaffirmed on Friday that it will keep pump prices unchanged during the New Year holidays.

Sarun Rungkasiri, an executive vice-president at PTT, said his company would not raise or cut retail prices of fuel at its outlets nationwide during the New Year festive season.

PTT will also ensure sufficient supply to serve the increased demand of motorists travelling to and from their hometowns for the New Year festival, he said.

There will be no problem of a fuel shortage in Mae Hong Son this year because PTT had sent delivery trucks to standby its outlet in the northern province, said Mr Sarun.

There was a fuel shortage in Mae Hong Son during last year’s New Year holiday because the heavy holiday traffic blocked PTT’s tanker trucks from supplying fuel to its outlet in the province on time.

Bangchak president Anusorn Sangnimnuan on Thursday also said his company will keep its retail prices unchanged until the holiday ends on Jan 4, even if global oil prices fluctuate.
