By Aaron Humes: The price of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) is down, as per notice from the Supplies Control Unit.
The price per gallon dips thirty cents and the price per pound goes down nine cents meaning that the consumer will now pay nine dollars less for a hundred-pound cylinder.
The new prices are as follows: $4.43 per gallon wholesale, $6.03 per gallon retail in the municipalities, and $6.13 in the rural areas.
Most are used to measuring by the pound, so in urban areas, the price is now $1.38 per pound, and in rural areas $1.40. A typical hundred-pound cylinder will thus cost you 138 dollars in urban areas and 140 in rural areas.
The acquisition price for butane is slightly down, leading to the change which takes effect on Wednesday.
