Residents of Kano have lamented the rising cost of Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) popularly known
as “cooking gas” in the state.
A check by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) correspondent on Monday revealed that a kilogramme of LPG now sells for between N1,200 and N1,260 as against N1,050 a week ago.
Also, a 12.5kg cylinder of LPG, which hitherto sold for N13,000 has jumped to N15,000, while 5kg that sold for N5,000 now sells for between N6,000 and N6,300, depending on the dealer.
A customer, Musa Shanono, said low-income earners were suffering because they battle with both the high cost of food items and cooking gas.
