The importance of Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) in the daily lives of Bangladeshi citizens cannot be overstated. Almost all of us know that LPG is not inexhaustible, yet we continue to waste valuable natural gas every day. Some even waste LPG by keeping the stove burning to keep the house warm during the winter. In many houses people constantly waste LPG by keeping the stove burning so as not to light a matchstick.
Apart from this, we are constantly wasting gas in other ways, sometimes knowingly and sometimes unknowingly. We waste tens of thousands of takas worth of LPG for a matchbox worth about Tk 2-5, and this is not acceptable. We should all stop this practice.
