Bangladesh Energy Regulatory Commission (BERC) has revises down the retail price of LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) for the month of June.
It re-fixed the price at Tk 842 a 12kg cylinder provided by the private operators which was Tk 906 in May.
“The new price will be effective from June 1,” BERC Chairman Md Abdul Jalil told a virtual press briefing on May 31.
He said the price was adjusted based on the Saudi Aramco contract price (CP) of May 2021, fluctuations of foreign exchange rate and change in the value added tax (VAT).
The price of auto gas has been fixed at Tk 41.74 per liter, down from Tk 44.70 per liter in May.
Among others, BERC Secretary Rubina Ferdousi, members and officials joined the virtual briefing.
