Consumers of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) known as cooking gas have complained about the sudden increase in the price of the commodity.
Many of the consumers have described hike in the price of the product as outrageous, considering the current situation in the country.
The price of refilling the 12.5kg cooking gas cylinder which used to be between N3,200 and N3,500 for a very long time has suddenly risen up to between N4,000 and N4,500, while the camping gas cylinder which was N1,500 now sells for N2,500.
