Fuel price hike: Cooking gas also goes dearer after 4 months

Kathmandu, April 6

The government-run fuel distribution monopoly Nepal Oil Corporation has increased the prices of petroleum products once again. Of late, the corporation has been increasing fuel prices every fortnight.

As per the statement made by the corporation on Tuesday evening, the following changes have been made to the new price:

Product Previous price New price
Petrol Rs 155/litre Rs 160/litre
Diesel/Kerosene Rs 138/litre Rs 143/litre
Cooking gas Rs 1,575/cylinder Rs 1,600/cylinder

The corporation has also increased the aviation fuel prices for both domestic and international flight operators.

Whereas the corporation would abstain from making the cooking gas expensive despite facing a continuous loss owing to public protests, it has increased the prices of cooking (LP) gas also this time.

The last increase in the price of cooking gas was in November 2021.
