0 59

On Wednesday, the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers’ Liquefied Petroleum Gas Retailers Branch expressed concern about the recent increase in the price of Liquefied Petroleum Gas, also known as cooking gas.

It said the cost of the commodity had been on the increase in the last two weeks and urged the government to intervene considering the current energy crisis in Nigeria as seen in the drop in power supply and petrol scarcity.

The NUPENG LPG retailers’ branch Chairman, Chika Umudu, said, “The branch union decries the return of LPG price rise which has led to an increment of up to N1,000 for 12.5kg size or N80 for 1kg within the last two weeks throughout the country.

“Consequently, the price of the average size cylinder (12.5kg) is now being sold at about N8500 from N7500 two weeks ago in Lagos and neighbouring states.
