The Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) has announced a revision in the prices of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), raising it by Rs10 per kilogramme. As per the notification, the new price for LPG will be Rs240 per kilogramme.
Additionally, the domestic cylinder rate will be increased to Rs2,830, while the commercial cylinder prices will soar to Rs10,900.
In remote and mountainous regions, the LPG price will be set at Rs370 per kg, with the home LPG cylinder costing Rs4,130.
The Chairman of the LPG Association, Irfan Khokar, expressed his concern over the government and OGRA’s lack of action against the illegal sale of LPG across the country.
Furthermore, LPG sellers have called for a countrywide strike to protest against the high prices of the commodity.
According to reports, LPG is not being sold anywhere in the country at the fixed official price due to black marketeering.
