The Energy Regulatory Authority (ARENE) announced on Thursday, January 19, the downward adjustment of the price of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), also known as “cooking gas”, which from this Friday, January 20, will cost 90.1 meticais per kilogram, against the previous 95.04.
According to a statement, quoted by the newspaper Notícias, ARENE decided to maintain the prices of gasoline, diesel, lighting oil and vehicular natural gas (CNG).
“The adjustment of the price of cooking gas was influenced by the reduction of its base price, which allows the adjustment to be made,” the statement advances.
This is the first time this year that ARENE reduces the price of cooking gas. The last price revision was made in mid-December last year, when it suffered a 7% reduction, i.e. the product went from 102.02 meticais per kilogram to 95.04 meticais.
At the time, the Energy Regulatory Authority said that the approved values “took into account the mitigation measures approved by the Government,” adding that “in general, the international market for oil derivatives is still considered fragile and unpredictable.
