The price of residential gas for two stoves has been increased from Tk 975 to Tk 1,080. The price of 1 stove has also gone up. Customers will have to pay Tk 990 for using 1 stove which has increased from 925.

However, the price of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) has not been increased. This calculation will be effective from June. Customers will have to pay gas bills with this new price from July.

Acting chairman of the Bangladesh Energy Regulatory Commission (BERC) Mohammad Abu Faruque announced the hike through a virtual briefing on Sunday.

As per the announcement, the average gas price has been raised to Tk 11.91 per cubic metre from the existing Tk 9.70 per cubic metre (CM).

Except the users of CNG (compressed natural gas) all other consumers will have to pay more for the natural gas. The price for small industries has, however, been decreased a little.
