The Energy Ministry is confident that support from the oil fund will maintain the price of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) at Bt363 per 15 kilograms until July, its minister, Siri Jirapongpha, said recently.

The fund will continue to subsidise the costs of energy for household customers following the Energy Policy Committee approval.

The committee approved losses to the oil fund of up to Bt7 billion to support the household costs for LPG. So far, the fund is showing a net loss of I Bt6.13 billion, leaving room for continuing price subsidies through to July, said Siri.
