In yet another blow to the public after a continuous hike in fuel prices in the past two weeks, prices for liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) increased by Rs 2.34 and Rs 48 for subsidised and non-subsidised cylinders respectively in the national capital on Friday.

The new price for subsidised (14.2 Kg) cylinder in Delhi is Rs 493.55, while that of non-subsidised cylinder is Rs 698.50.

Besides Delhi, the new rates for subsidised cylinder are Rs 496.65 in Kolkata, Rs 491.31 in Mumbai and Rs 481.84 in Chennai respectively.

Non-subsidised LPG cylinders, on the other hand, are being sold at Rs 723.50 in Kolkata, Rs 671.50 in Mumbai and Rs 712.50 in Chennai.

Thie hike comes amid criticism that the government has been receiving for not curbing rising fuel prices for 16 consecutive days until May 30, when prices were brought by just 1 paisa. On Thursday, petrol prices were reduced by 7 paise, and another 6 paise on Friday.

In Delhi, Petrol now costs Rs 78.29 per litre, while diesel price has been revised to Rs 69.20 a litre.
