Bangladesh Energy Regulatory Commission (BERC) has cut the prices of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), sold by private companies.

According to the new rate, the price of 12 kg cylinder of LPG, including VAT, is Tk 1,219 – down from Tk 1,254.

The new price rate will be effective from today.

The energy regulatory commission said they decreased the price after LPG prices went down in the global market.

The price of LPG sold by state-owned LP Gas Limited remains unchanged. The price of 12.5 kg tank of LPG is still Tk 591.

For usage as vehicle fuel, each litre "auto-gas" will now cost Tk 56.85, down from Tk 58.46.

The BERC set the prices of LPG for the first time on April 12, 2021.
