Gas price hike from tomorrow Featured

The cost of living committee decided on August 21 that the price of a 12.5 kg domestic gas cylinder be raised by Rs. 158, to Rs. 1,696 from tomorrow (25).

The decision follows a request by Litro and Laugfs gas companies to up the price in view of the increasing gas price in the world market.

The price of a metric ton of gas was 469.5 dollars in March.

It rose to 590.05 dollars by August.

This year - on April 27, the gas price was raised by Rs. 245, but was reduced by Rs. 138 on June 29.
