ISLAMABAD (APP) - The Liquified Petroleum Gas Distributors Association Pakistan has proposed to establish LPG fuel stations across the country for ensuring provision of this essential commodity to consumers on prescribed rates. Chairman of the Association and LPG Zonal Standing Committee (FPCCI) M Irfan Khokhar while talking to APP here said accordingly he has forwarded this suggestion to the concerned quarters for consideration. LPG fuel stations be established in the country as operating in the United Kingdom. Cheaper electricity can be generated by promoting the LPG sector, he observed. Elaborating, he said a fuel station could be set up at a cost of Rs. 2.5 million, which requires 150 to 200 square feet land. A CD-70 motorcycle would consume one kg LPG for covering distance of about 130 kilometre, similarly small and large vehicles running on LPG would give better mileage as compared to CNG, petrol or diesel, Khokhar added. He gave another proposal for tax-free import of LPG, adding that the such initiative would help save billion of rupees being spent on import of petrol and diesel. Besides, he said there should be price control committee for providing LPG to consumers on prescribed rates across the country. Irfan Khokhar said there is dire need of regulating LPG price fixation mechanism to end monopoly of 'Gas Mafia, which has been creating artificial shortage and minting extra money from consumers. He said the proposed committee should be under control of the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Resources, having the task to determine profit margin of producers, marketing companies and distributors. Besides, fixation of LPG price, its monitoring and full implementation, he added. The authorities concerned should regularly visit the production plants of LPG producers and marketing companies to avoid any artificial shortage, Irfan Khokhar added.
