No Increase In Litro Gas Prices

Jan 13, 2011 7:43:48 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The Cooperatives and Internal Trade Ministry has stated that the price of a Litro gas cylinder will not be increased following the increase of Laugfs gas prices.

Cooperatives and Internal Trade Minister Johnston Fernando has told the media that while the government would not increase the price of Litro gas, it could not allow Laugfs gas to incur losses.

Fernando has explained that although the entire tax component was removed, it was not sufficient and the Consumer Affairs Authority had therefore permitted the Rs. 36.
