The price of LPG will be $166.68 for the 100-lb cylinder, $ 46.77 for the 25-lb cylinder, $41.32 for the 22-lb cylinder and $37.57 for the 20-lb cylinder.

To protect consumers from the increase of refined petroleum products, the government declared the capping of the Value-added tax on diesel and gasoline in this year’s budget.

However, petroleum prices are increasing internationally; therefore, the costs would have to be adjusted upward for July. It is a matter of consideration for the citizens if the prices of gasoline will increase; consequently, prices of everything will increase as the cost of transportation rises to its peak this coming month.

As transportation increases, the prices of everything will rise.

Last month, from June 5 (Sunday), the price of gasoline was changed to $4.41 per litre, an increase of three (3) cents, while diesel was up by 1 cent to $4.04 per litre, and kerosene was moved to $2.63, an increase of 23 cents.

The retail price of LPG was $170.42 for the 100-lb cylinder, $ 47.71 for the 25-lb cylinder, $42.15 for the 22-lb cylinder and $38.31 for the 20-lb cylinder.
