Bhutan - Petrol price to skyrocket

The price of petrol is expected to increase by more than Nu.2 per litre. The hike will come into effect from tomorrow according to the Department of Trade. This is the second hike in a month and the fourth within a year.

With the increase, a liter of petrol will cost Nu. 54. The last price hike on December 16 saw an increase of about Nu. 3.

The rise in petrol price is mainly because of the price hike in India.

However, the price of diesel, kerosene and LPG cooking gas will remain the same.
