Litro to drop LP gas prices


Litro Gas said it will take steps to decrease the price of a domestic LP gas cylinder by Rs 100 or Rs 200.

Chairman of Litro Gas, Muditha Peiris said, the price revision will take effect from midnight today (5).

The Chairman further said, the computations for the revised rates are now being completed.

Peiris also said, Sri Lankans living overseas will soon be able to purchase domestic gas for relatives in the country, as the firm prepares to create an app that will allow customers to pay for gas in dollars.

According to Peiris, the feature will be added to Litro’s home delivery app, which will be released in August 2020.

“We would like to invite expatriates to buy for their relatives as a way of helping the country overcome its currency issue,” he said.

A 12.5 kg domestic gas cylinder will cost around 13 USD according to present exchange rates.

Meanwhile, Laugfs Gas said no decision to cut gas rates has been made.
