Cost of living prices are increasing and it has been announced that there will be a (temporary) rise in gasoline prices. More expensive gasoline at the pump may increase the price of your tuktuk. It will also encourage the blackmarket petrol vendors.

Regular gasoline continues to rise to 4,000 riel per litre

Gasoline prices in Cambodia continue to rise to 4,000 riels per liter for the next 10 days. According to a Ministry of Commerce statement on Thursday.

Sure it was $1 a litre before the government stepped in with price controls. This is why everyone drives the wrong way down 1 way streets, to save gas

And here I was thinking it was because we live in a lawless shithole country where the people's indifference to laws and law enforcement was appropriately counter-balanced by the police departments corrupt and continued efforts to enrich themselves at the people's expense.

Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe people are just too lazy to drive around the block. :stir:

Motorists should drive without their headlights on , especially at night time. We all know that a moto that does not have to make electricity for the lights uses less petrol.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

I guess you're the only one unaware the Cambodian government will tax anybody driving a motorbike with their headlights on.

If you are referring to the law that says you cannot drive with lights on in the daytime that is supposed to have stopped at the last traffic law update. There was a post about it in CEO recently I think.
