PHUKET: Nationwide petrol prices, including those in Phuket, rose by as much as 40 satang earlier this week.

The Phuket Gazette confirmed with PTT gas stations in Phuket that the price rises on petrol and gasohol went into effect on the island last Wednesday.

The prices of all benzine petrol and most forms of gasohol increased by 40 satang (0.4 baht) per liter.

The E85 form of “Gasohol 95” increased by 20 satang (0.2 baht) per liter, but the price of diesel remained unchanged.

Staff at the new PTT gas station just north of the Heroines’ Monument on Thepkrasattri Road northbound confirmed that the price of Gasohol 95 there increased from 35.73 baht per litter to 36.13 baht per liter, and Gasohol 91 rose from 33.98 baht per liter to 34.38 per liter.

The price of E20 increased from 32.98 baht per liter to 33.38, and E85 increased from 22.66 baht per liter to 22.86.

While PTT started charging the higher prices on Wednesday, the main Shell petrol station just north of the Heroines’ Monument confirmed to the Phuket Gazette that they started charging the higher prices on Tuesday.

The prices per liter charged at that Shell gas station are now:

  • Diesel: 30.43 baht;
  • Diesel V Power: 33.42
  • Gasohol 91: 34.38
  • Gasohol 95: 36.13
  • Gasohol V Power 95: 38.95
