Pakistan: LPG price hiked amid rising power bill and inflation

| @indiablooms | 04 Sep 2023, 06:06 pm

Pakistan's caretaker government is failing to provide relief to the already burdened nationals as it announced an increase in the price of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) by 19.4pc on Friday.

Following the latest hike, the price of a domestic cylinder is moved up by Rs460 for the current month.

Pakistan Railways followed suit, raising passenger fares by 5pc. This was the second increase in a month, reports Dawn News.

In a notification, the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (Ogra) set the price of LPG at Rs240.2 per kg for September against Rs201.2 in August, up by Rs39 per kg.

Therefore, the price of a domestic LPG cylinder, weighing 11.8kg, has been increased to Rs2,833.49 for the current month against Rs2,373.64 in the previous month, an increase of Rs460, the newspaper reported.

The price of a commercial cylinder (45.4kg) has jumped by Rs1,170 to Rs10,905 for September against Rs9,135 in August.

Pakistan's citizens are already troubled by a spike in electricity bills and inflation.

The country has been witnessing regular protests over the issue in recent times.
