Gas prices hiked by Rs. 50, Rs. 360

March 1, 2023
  • Domestic gas to cost Rs. 1,107.50 now; old price Rs. 1,057.50
  • Commercial cylinder to cost Rs. 2,170; old price Rs. 1,810

Mysore/Mysuru: Petroleum and Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) have hiked the price of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) cylinder with immediate effect from Mar. 1. This is the first hike in domestic LPG cylinder price since July 2022.

With this price increase, a 14.2-kg domestic LPG cylinder has now been priced at Rs. 1,107.50 (old price Rs. 1,057.50) in Mysuru, an increase of Rs. 50.

Commercial LPG cylinder price has also been hiked by Rs. 360 per 19-kg cylinder in Mysuru and it will now cost Rs. 2,170 (old price Rs. 1,810).

Unlike domestic LPG cylinder, which is used by households, commercial LPG cylinder prices were revised at regular intervals. This is the second hike in commercial LPG cylinder prices this year. Earlier, on January 1, commercial cylinder prices were increased by Rs. 25 per unit.

Global crude oil and fuel prices had skyrocketed in the aftermath of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which had forced the public sector OMCs — Indian Oil Corporation (IOC), Bharat Petroleum Corporation (BPC) and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation (HPC) — to halt regular revisions in prices of fuels like petrol, diesel and LPG used by households in a bid to shield consumers from extreme fuel price volatility, which has now subsided to a large extent.

    Now it is right time to increase production of Potatoes, Cabbages , Radish and Cauliflowers. So our netas can sit ( on empty cylinders) in Vidhan Soudha or LS/RS and give a free fill.
    TN members can do this on marina beach side also
    Kerala MPs will take the matter to Supreme court, or call for CBI to sit on cylinders
    Finally GAIL and ONGC will get the surplus

    Where is @A V Prasanna, the poster who claims he is the Sir MV of electrical engineering as he was a minor engineer in Trombay Thermal station which pollutes Mumbai?
    He claims as an expert-of course, he a a self-styled expert , thinking that he is a kind of NASA engineer, who is the main proponent of these LPG cylinders, he promoted them and accused Shenoy , another attention-seeking columnist of getting bribes from the Piped Gas company which digs roads to supply the gas to households through gas pipe.
    This hike in the gas prices, inspite of the fact Narendra Modi, gets the gas from Russia, at a discounted price, after Germany stopped buying it, and so do other Western countries which boycotted Russia for invading Ukaraine. May be this LPG cylinder company pays promoters like @AV Prasanna for recommending the LPG cylinders. This is India, hypocrisy id its soul!
