Fuel tariffs between February and May could increase thanks to higher natural-gas prices, Energy Policy and Planning Office Director-General Viraphol Jirapraditkul said.

However, other factors to consider are demand in warmer periods and the amount of natural gas used in generating electricity. Natural gas accounts for 70 per cent of the fuel used by the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand. An authority source said an increase of Bt10 for every million British thermal units of natural gas used would increase the unit price of electricity by six satang.
