The mar­ket­ing com­pa­nies on Wed­nes­day in­creased the price of Liq­ue­fied Pe­tro­leum Gas (LPG) by up to Rs 15 per kg. Chair­man of the LPG Dis­trib­u­tors As­so­ci­a­tion Muham­mad Ir­fan Khokhar said that the price of a domestic cylin­der had been raised by up to Rs 170 and a com­mer­cial cylin­der by up to Rs 680.

As a re­sult of the in­crease from Rs 125 to Rs 140 per kg, the domestic cylin­der will be avail­able at Rs 1630 in Karachi, he added. Like­wise, the domestic cylin­der will cost Rs 1690 in La­hore, Gu­jran­wala, Gu­jrat, Jhelum and Faisal­abad, with per kg price rise from Rs 135 to Rs 145, he said.

He said that the LPG would be avail­able at Rs 150-160 per kg in Multan, Bhawalpur, Rahim Yar Khan, Mur­ree, Rawalpindi, Is­lam­abad and Pe­shawar with the price of domestic cylin­der at Rs 1870. He said that in Azad Jammu and Kash­mir and Bagh the new price of LPG would stand at Rs 180-190 per kg and domestic cylin­der at Rs 2230.
