The price of 12.5kg domestic LITRO gas cylinder has been reduced by Rs. 113 from midnight today, LITRO Lanka Chairman Muditha Peiris said.

Accordingly, the new retail price of the 12.5kg gas cylinder will be Rs. 4,551.

The 5 kg gas cylinder will be reduced by Rs.45 and the 2.3 kg cylinder will be reduced by Rs.21 from tonight.

The price reduction is mainly due to the fluctuation in global gas prices, the chairman said.

The price revision took place by collective efforts taken by the Finance Ministry, Consumer Affairs Authority (CAA), the Presidential Secretariat and with LITRO Lanka Ltd., following new added features to the existing gas price formula. Earlier, price of domestic LITRO gas cylinders was reduced on August 9. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)

    Who deals in coins these days. Should have been 4550 or 4555

    Next time just reduce instead of waiting some days. Rs. 113 reduction for 12.5kg cylinder is only about 2.5%. Europe is pushing hard to reduce it's dependency on imported piped gas from who they most oppose (Russia), if that continues through their winter, maybe we can get some better reduction with the new gas price formula. Anyway, wonder how's the VAT increase going to or not going to be applied?

    You Crooks increased it by Rs3000. 00 and you've done a great help to the people by reducing it by 113. 00 for this money you can't buy even a half pound of bread.

    Increase by thousands and now reducing by a hundred.Is this some form of torture?

    All the noise and publicity made by Muditha Peiris the whole of last week is regarding this price reduction of only Rs. 113/- ? When there is an increase of a few thousands the action is instant and sans any prior announcement !

    When Litro wants to inrease the price , they increase by 1000 - 1500 .But when they reduce , reduce by 100 - 200..... what a beauty....

    Dont forget, there could be less damnd for Gas as people are now limited to 2 or 1 meal a day instead of 3 meals in the past... low demand/high supply solves the equation for lowering the price.....

    Big deal! Raise it 100% and bring it down 0.2%!!! No thank you, it's now the dara lipa for me!

    Kanchana and Muditha are fond of showing their faces on the TV.So they appear as often as possible to make these insignificant announcements.
