The hike in cylinder prices has come at a time when people are already troubled by the rising prices of petrol and diesel in the country.
Earlier this month, the prices of commercial LPG cylinders increased. On 1 May, the price of a 19-kg commercial LPG cylinder was increased by Rs 102.50, to Rs 2355.50, up from Rs 2253 before. Also, the price of a 5-kg LPG commercial cylinder was increased to Rs 655.
Previously, the rate of 19-kg commercial LPG was increased by Rs 250 per cylinder to Rs 2,253 on 1 April. Further, the price of commercial LPG was hiked by Rs 105 on 1 March, 2022.
The recent price hike in petrol and petroleum products is due to a sharp increase in global energy prices as a result of the Russia-Ukraine situation that has led to supply worries.
