The Government announced today (July 31) the adjusted ceiling prices of motor liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) for dedicated LPG filling stations for the period from 1 August 2002 to 31 January 2003.
A Government spokesman said the adjusted ceiling prices, ranging from $1.76 per litre to 2.05 per litre, is adjusted based on a specified pricing formula. This compares with the previous ceiling prices of $1.85 per litre to 2.15 per litre at the dedicated stations.
He pointed out that the actual selling price of motor LPG at a dedicated station may be lower than the ceiling price, depending on the decision of the respective contractor based on market condition.
The adjustment of the ceiling price is based on a pricing formula specified in each contract. The formula comprises two elements, LPG international price element and LPG operating price element. The first element will be adjusted twice a year by the average LPG international price in the preceding six months while the second element will be adjusted yearly according to movement in the Composite Consumer Price Index in the previous year.
