Now, you might be wondering, “What’s the big deal with LPG? How does it impact our daily lives?” Well, stick around, and we’ll spill the beans on that, along with a pinch of how it influences the prices of stuff we buy.
Let’s start with the OGRA LPG prices.

Uses of LPG and How it Can Impact Overall Prices?
Many of us don’t even know about the LPG full form. LPG stands for Liquefied Petroleum Gas. It is crucial for many of us. Particularly in areas where natural gas is unavailable or subject to extreme load shedding, LPG becomes a crucial resource for cooking and heating. It is also widely used in restaurants, rickshaws, and various industries as a fuel source.
The increase in LPG prices can have many impacts on the common people, especially low-income families, affecting their essential expenses. Furthermore, it may directly contribute to price hikes in restaurants & small food stalls, rickshaw fares, and products associated with industries that rely on LPG as fuel.
Overall, it’s a tough pill to swallow, especially when considering the rise in fuel prices, electricity costs, and inflation. The government had to pass on the burden, thanks to the IMF deal, but it is us, the common people, who end up carrying the weight. The reduction in petrol price may bring a sigh of relief for people though!
