On an average, cooking gas price has been raised by ₹146.38 a cylinder across the metros.

The subsidy on cooking gas has also been raised to maintain the effective price of LPG cylinders for recipients. The subsidy outgo to domestic consumers has been doubled from around ₹150 a cylinder to almost ₹300. This has been done to ensure that consumers continue to pay around ₹550 to ₹570 a cylinder for cooking gas across the country.

Till now, petroleum product prices have been revised at the beginning of every month. But it appears that the public sector oil marketing companies shied away from hiking prices in the light of the Assembly elections in Delhi.
