LPG cylinder prices vary from state to state depending on the VAT and transportation costs of the region. It is also calculated on the basis of the prices of crude oil. Retailers revise LPG cylinder prices at the beginning of each month keeping in line with global crude oil prices.
The rising rates of crude oil globally had prompted state-owned fuel retailers to hike LPG prices. The latest hike in domestic cooking gas prices comes months after finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman had in May stated that Ujjwala scheme beneficiaries will get Rs 200 per cylinder subsidy for 12 times in a year to help ease some of the burden arising from cooking gas rates rising to record levels. The LPG cylinder price hike also comes at a time when the common man is already reeling under inflationary pressure.
Meanwhile, contrary to the relentless cooking gas price hikes, petrol and diesel prices remained unchanged for over a month on Wednesday. This comes after Nirmala Sitharaman announced an excise duty cut on the auto fuels in order to provide relief to the common man.
