The hike comes at a time  when the prices of petrol and diesel prices touched all-time highs across the four metros on Sunday after oil marketing companies increased the rates by around 30 paise for the sixth straight day. In Delhi, the price of petrol was hiked by 29 paise from ₹ 88.44 to ₹ 88.73 per litre, and diesel was increased by 32 paise from ₹ 78.74 per litre to ₹ 79.06 per litre, according to Indian Oil Corporation. In Mumbai, the revised petrol and diesel rates stood at ₹ 95.21 per litre and ₹ 86.04 per litre respectively.

Indian Oil, the country’s largest fuel retailer, supplies LPG under the brand Indane. Usually, the rates of non-subsidised LPG cylinders are reviewed on a monthly basis and any changes effected on the first day of each month. Cooking gas rates vary in different parts of the country due to local taxes.

Presently, the government subsidises 12 cylinders of 14.2 kilograms each per household every year. The customer has to make any additional purchases of LPG cylinders at the market price.
