After the latest price increase, a domestic cooking gas cylinder would cost more than $1,000.
On Thursday, the price of domestic cooking gas LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) was raised by $3.50 per cylinder. This is the second increase in May, pushing LPG prices above $1,000.
According to a price notification from state fuel dealers, non-subsidized cooking gas currently costs 1,003 per 14.2-kg cylinder in the national capital.
The rise follows a 50 percent increase implemented on May 7. On March 22, prices were raised by the same amount before that.
Prices for 19-kg commercial LPG cylinders increased by 102.50 to 2,355.50 on May 1.
The 19-kg commercial cylinder currently costs 2355.50 in Delhi, while it costs 2,307 in Mumbai.
LPG cylinder prices vary by city due to value-added tax (VAT) and other charges.
The increase in gas cylinder prices comes as fuel prices in certain areas exceed $100 per litre.
Rates continue to rise as a result of the Russia-Ukraine conflict and global supply worries.
