Kathmandu, August 1
The Nepal Oil Corporation on Tuesday decided to decrease the price of liquefied petroleum (cooking) gas by Rs 25 per cylinder.
A consumer has to pay Rs 1,325 only to buy a cylinder of gas after Tuesday midnight.
The Corporation has been adjusting the price of petroleum products on the basis of international market rates every fortnight.
Meanwhile, the Corporation says prices of other products–petrol, diesel, kerosene and aviation fuel–have not changed this time.
A litre of petrol costs Rs 98 whereas kerosene and diesel can be bought at the same rate of Rs 74 per litre.
The state-owned fuel monopoly says it earned Rs 335 million profit from the trade in past 15 days.
