Staff Reporter :
Price of liquefied petroleum gas has been reduced by Tk 35 per 12kg cylinder selling at Tk 1,200 from the existing rate of Tk 1,235 by the private companies.
The Bangladesh Energy Regulatory Commission (BERC) has adjusted downward the price.
The new price rate will come into effect from 6:00pm on Sunday, BERC Chairman Abdul Jalil announced at a virtual press conference.
The price of different quantities of LPG cylinders will be determined accordingly, the BERC Chairman said it in the press conference.
The decision has been taken as the LPG prices went down in the global market.
The price of LPG sold by state-owned LP Gas Limited however, remains unchanged.
The price of LPG (auto gas) used in cars has also been adjusted downward and now auto gas will be sold at Tk 55.92 per litre, which was Tk 57.55 earlier, the BERC said.
The BERC fixed the prices of LPG for the first time on April 12, 2021.
