The persistent rise in inflation in the past more than 14 months (in September 13.7%, August 13.2%, July 12.8%, June at 12.6% from the 12.4% recorded in May 2020) has implications for the price of LPG across the country.

    • The Prices of crude oil in the international market fluctuated throughout the week. However, the price fall at the end of the week compare to the middle of the week (Figure E).
