The price of domestic cooking gas (LPG) was hiked by Rs 50 per cylinder on Tuesday, sources said. A 14.2-kg non-subsidised LPG cylinder will now cost Rs 949.50 in Delhi.

Meanwhile, a 5-kg LPG cylinder will now cost Rs 349 while a 10-kg composite bottle will be priced at Rs 669, as per sources.

The 19-kg commercial cylinder will now cost Rs 2,003.50.

This is the first increase in LPG rates since early October. Until now, prices had been on a freeze even as the cost of raw materials spiralled.

The hike in prices is in line with a spike in international energy prices, sources said.

The price of LPG cylinders is revised monthly for all states and union territories in India.
