The price of a 12-kg liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) cylinder has increased by Tk 22.15 to Tk 1,498.
Bangladesh Energy Regulatory Commission (BERC) announced the fresh price on Thursday (Feb 2).
The new price rate will come into effect from 6:00 pm today.
The price of different quantities of LPG cylinders will be determined accordingly.
The BERC said it adjusted the price after LPG prices went up in the global market.
The price of LPG, marketed by state-owned LP Gas Company, will remain the same as it is locally produced with a market share of less than 5 per cent.
The new price of LPG (autogas) used in cars has been fixed at Taka 69.71 per liter, which was Taka 57.41 earlier.
The BERC set the prices of LPG for the first time on April 12, 2021.
