Thais Protest Cooking Gas Price Increase

Sept. 3, 2013 - Bangkok, Thailand - A group of farmers dressed in their underwear picket the office of the Thai Prime Minister at Government House to protest the price of cooking gas. The Thai government raised the price of Liquified Propane Gas (LPG - cooking gas) by 50 satang per kilogram (about 1.5 cents US) over the weekend. The price of electricity and highway tolls also went up on the same day dealing most Thais a triple blow. The Thai consumers foundation has filed a suit in Thai administrative courts to block the increase but the courts have not yet ruled on the case. About 50 people protested the price hike at Government House in Bangkok and delivered a letter outlining their objections to a representative of the Prime Minister. (Credit Image: © Jack Kurtz)
