Rates were hiked earlier this month too
Notably, this is the second price hike this month. CNG and PNG rates were increased by Rs. 2.28 per kg and Rs. 2.10 per SCM after a 62% increase in natural gas prices. But even with the revised prices, CNG would still offer over 60 percent savings when compared to the current prices of alternate auto fuels.
Petrol and diesel prices already at record highs
The rise in CNG and PNG prices has come at a time when people are already burdened by record auto fuel prices. Petrol price has crossed the Rs. 100 mark in several cities and states across India. The Congress and other Opposition parties have been critical of the Bharatiya Janata Party-led (BJP) central government over the high prices.
