Bottled gas prices fall by 9.7%
06 March 2015 @ 17:32

GAS bottle prices have gone down for the first time in many years, by 9.7%.

A typical 12.5-kilo butane bottle, used for cookers, heaters or barbecues in homes that are not on mains gas has just gone down to €15.80 and will remain at this price until the end of April.

Costs of gas bottles have been frozen for two years after a series of hikes that saw them double in price, but the ministry of industry has applied a new formula in calculating prices of gas.

In fact, it is likely the price will go down again in May and June in line with current previsions.

Every two months, gas costs are reviewed in keeping with international purchase prices for the raw material and maximum and minimum limits are applied to the end price to the consumer.

Now that it's getting warmer and I don't need to buy another bottle until next winter, the prices come down.
