BERC adjusts upward 12kg LPG cylinder price Tk 1,313


Bangladesh Energy Regulatory Commission (BERC) has adjusted the prices of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) of private companies upward Taka 1,313 for every 12kg LPG cylinder for the month of November.

The existing price of every 12kg LPG cylinder is Taka 1,259. The new price will be effective from today (Nov 4), BERC officials said in a press conference.

The BERC re-fixes the price per month as per the new rate of the Saudi contract price.

The contract price rate set by the Saudi Arabian Oil Company (Saudi Aramco) each month is the dominant price for LPG in Asia and elsewhere in the world.

Meanwhile, the price of 12.5 kg LPG of the state-owned company has remained unchanged at Taka 591 as the cost has not changed at the production stage, BERC said.

However, the price of LPG used in cars has been raised to Taka 61.18 per liter from Taka 58.68. The price of LPG has gone up in the global market now, said BERC Chairman Md Abdul Jalil.

“We have adjusted the price appropriately for the local market and the operators should implement it.”
