KARACHI (APP) - LPG marketing companies have increased price of Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) by Rs 4 per kg to Rs 85 in the country on the pretext of production fall and rising international prices. Central chairman of All Pakistan LPG Distributors Association Hadi Khan said here Thursday, that Saudi Aramco CP for LPG has been increased by $ 70 to $ 730 per metric ton for December, 2009. He feared that LPG price will be further increased at the start of next year due to rise in international price. He alleged that LPG local production has been decreased by 650 tons per day while the demand has surged to 2100 ton per day. Hadi said that 11.8 kg cylinder will be sold at Rs 895 while 45.4 kg cylinder will be sold at Rs 3443. He urged the government to ask local producers to increase LPG production according to their installed capacity to discourage import of LPG. He urged the government to remove sales tax on LPG to reduce its cost.
