Jan 05, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Consumer Affairs Authority has allowed the country's LP gas suppliers, Litro and Laugfs, to raise the price of a 12.5 kg gas cylinder, effective from midnight Saturday (05).

Accordingly price of a 12.5 kg LP gas cylinder will be increased by Rs. 150. The new price of a both Litro and Laugfs LP gas cylinder will be Rs. 2,396.

The Consumer Affairs Authority said it has reviewed the requests by both, state-owned Litro and Laugfs, to raise the price of a 12.5 kg gas cylinder and agreed that the request was reasonable considering the rise in global market.
