Thai diesel price = 33.9 baht per litre
Average global diesel price = 63.6 baht per litre
UK diesel price is typically = 81 baht per litre (at 43.3 exchange rate)

There is a very good argument that governments should have been increasing taxes on fuel in the last decade or so.
That leads to more efficient use, less pollution and the economy becomes less susceptible to oil price rises.

Eliminating the tax advantage for pickups would also make sense. Due to weight and poor aerodynamics, using pickups for all sorts of purposes is less efficient than using the correct vehicle for each role.
