- The price of a gas cylinder has gone up by Rs 0 this month
- But the situation is not clear about LPG subsidy
- The government has not said whether it will subsidize the oil companies

In Delhi, the price of a 14.2 kg gas cylinder has gone up to Rs 64,644 in December from Rs 59,4 in November. The price of gas was increased after five months. The price of gas cylinders had not changed since July.
Most cooking gas consumers have not received subsidies since May. This is because the reduction in international oil prices and the increase in domestic refill rates made the price of subsidized cylinders and commercial cylinders equal. In June last year, the price of a subsidized gas cylinder in Delhi was Rs 497. Since then, it has risen by Rs 1,147. In June, the subsidy in Delhi was Rs 2,240.
