Kochi: Government seems to be in no mood to subsidise the price of common man’s LPG cooking gas cylinder which like the price of auto fuels petrol and diesel has maintained consistent increase for past few months.
Giving a tough time for the common people in Kerala, the price of cooking gas cylinder has been increased again.
The price of domestic cooking gas cylinder has been increased by Rs 25 and is now at Rs 826.
The price of the gas cylinder was Rs 801 after it was hiked by Rs 25 last week from Rs 776.
This is the fourth increase in a month and the second in 5 days.
With government not supporting even cooking gas consumers in the time of rising prices, consumers are bearing the brunt of increase in both their transportation and cooking expenses during the difficult period of pandemic.
