The Energy Policy Administration Committee on Monday resolved to cap the retail price of cooking gas at Bt318 per 15-kilo cylinder for another three months, until the end of December.

The move is aimed at easing living costs during the Covid-19 pandemic, said Energy Policy and Planning Office director-general Wattanapong Kurowat.

The subsidy is expected to cost the Oil Fund Bt450 million per month.

The committee also tasked the Energy Regulatory Commission with revising the service fee for piping natural gas to companies, aiming to create an “appropriate price”.
