Petrol Stations open after 10pm

Did you know that since mid 2005 all the petrol stations were closed from 10pm- 5 am? I never mentioned it, did I, hmmmm…. the Taksin Shinawatra goverment thought this would be a good way of
reducing fuel usage…. well, aren’t we glad that the Engery Ministry
doesn’t agree ๐Ÿ™‚ This has made travelling at night quite difficult for a couple of people I know. Now, all the petrol stations should be open 24 hours .ร‚ย  The new energy saving plan included time limits on huge billboard signs. Now that makes so much more sense to me !
btw.. martial law has been lifted over 40 provinces. Chiang Mai is NOT included….

    I’m glad it doesn’t affect you. I wasn’t sure if martial law would mean curfews and closed roads or things like that. Strange that doesn’t seem to make a difference, though
