How to change the price of cylinders
The price of LPG cylinders, which are revised on a monthly basis, mainly depends on two factors. The first is the dollar-rupee exchange rate and the second is the international crude oil price. The rise in Kovid-19 cases led to a fall in international crude oil prices, which brought some relief on LPG in April.
