By Aaron Humes: The Supplies Control Unit has announced an increase in the price of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) by 28 cents per gallon or three dollars per 100-pound cylinder.
Increases in acquisition costs for butane and propane drove the increase, which goes into effect on Monday, October 2.
The new prices are as follows: $3.83 wholesale, $5.43 per gallon retail in urban areas; $5.53 per gallon in rural areas; $1.24 per pound retail in urban areas, and $1.27 per pound retail in rural areas.
This means that a hundred-pound cylinder of LPG will cost you $124 in the towns and cities and $127 elsewhere.
Earlier this month, there had been a 16-cent reduction in prices following a 40-cent rise in August.
