    In spite of the fuel hike in 2008, and the economic downturn thereafter, could anyone update what's the price of gasoline in Laos and Thailand, with reference to the octane level?

    Thanks.

    For those interested in fuel prices, etc, in Laos, the Lao State Fuel company now published the fuel prices in the major towns in Laos. See thumbs_dsc_2238.jpg


    From this information it appears that 91 is available all over the country but that Super (95) is only available in Vientiane.
