Given the massive increase in supply-side cost, the company is constrained to increase the base price. Noting that the re-gasified liquefied natural gas price is also at a historical high now, MGL said these combinations have resulted in a significant increase in the cost of gas being procured by it.
This has forced the firm to pass on the price revision in a progressive manner as the rate hike from the supply side is too large to be passed on at one go, it added.
Even at the new prices, CNG is cheaper by 65 percent compared to petrol and 44 percent in the case of diesel. Domestic PNG is cheaper by 34 percent as against LPG.
