LAHORE: The price of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) shot up by Rs5/kg in the country, increasing to Rs105/kg on Sunday.

According to LPG Industries Association Pakistan, the price of a gas cylinder meant for domestic use has been increased by Rs60 while a commercial cylinder's price has gone up by Rs230.

Officials said the increase in LPG prices was due to the halt in supply of the fuel from the Pakistan-Iran border crossing in Taftan.

Last month, the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) had issued a notification stating the increase in LPG prices for the month of August.
