Cooking Gas gets 20% expensive in Dubai

Inflation scored another point in the daily lives of expats when the price of cooking gas cylinders went up to 20% in four emirates — Dubai, Ajman, Fujairah and Umm Al Quwain.

The 22kg medium-sized cylinder, which is the highest in demand for domestic use, will go up by Dh20 to Dh115.

The price of 11kg cylinders has gone up from Dh60 to Dh75, while the price of the 44kg cylinders, used for commercial purposes, have gone up from Dh200 to Dh240.

The prices for 11kg, 22kg and 44kg have risen by 25, 20 and 21 per cent respectively. The hike in prices comes close on the heels of similar hikes in Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah on December 8.

In Sharjah, the 11kg cylinder now costs Dh10 more and Dh17 more in Ras Al Khaimah.



Meanwhile, in Abu Dhabi the prices remain unchanged, gas distributors said. The cost of cooking gas cylinders is already the lowest in the capital with the price being Dh20 for 11kg, Dh30-Dh35 for 22kg and Dh60 for 44kg.
