HCM CITY (VNS) — Major cooking gas businesses in HCM City slashed their prices by VND14,000 (67 US cents) per 12kg canister on June 1.
Dealers in other provinces and cities in the country's southern region did the same, and each canister now costs between VND288,000 and VND288,500 (between $13.70 and $13.73) there, reported Dien Dan Doanh Nghiep (The Business Forum) online.
A representative of the Saigon Petro Company reportedly said the decline in retail prices followed movements in the global market, where the average gas price for June was down $47.5 per tonne from May. — VNS
