The price of CNG in Delhi-NCR has risen again. The cost of compressed natural gas used in the region for both private and public transport will increase 2 per kg from today. Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL) has shared the new tariffs for CNG in the Delhi-NCR region. This is the second increase in CNG prices in the last six days.

According to IGL, the price of CNG today in Delhi has reached 75.61 per kg. Fuel prices are slightly higher in neighboring satellite cities such as Noida, Greater Noida and Ghaziabad on 78.17 per kg. The guru will have to lay out much more compared to other places in Delhi-NCR. The cost of CNG in Gurugram today is 83.94 per kg.

On May 15, the price of CNG was raised 2 per kg. Since March 7 this year, IGL has increased the price of CNG 13 times. during this period the price of CNG rose almost 20 per kg. This includes a 7.50 per kg hike only in April. Over the past year the price of CNG has been increased by 32 per kg, which is almost 60 percent.

The price of CNG has been rising periodically since October last year, when domestic and international gas prices began to rise. Apart from Delhi-NCR, CNG prices have risen several times earlier this year in Mumbai.

With rising prices for gasoline and diesel out of control, passengers who prefer more cost-effective LNG to drive vehicles have found themselves in place. The price of CNG is rapidly catching up with gasoline and diesel prices before the pandemic. This is gradually removing the benefits of owning LNG vehicles for those who choose cleaner fuels without straining their budget too much.
