To shed light on the changing prices of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) in different regions of Nigeria, we have compiled a thorough report on LPG prices for December 2023. This report details the costs of LPG in numerous cities nationwide, covering both the 12.5kg cylinder and per kilogram rates. Additionally, it offers a comparison with November's prices. Our findings are based on insights collected from 23 respondents, predominantly sourced from responses on Facebook and X.


Cities Surveyed: Abia, Adamawa, Bauchi, Benue, Enugu, Bayelsa, Ibadan, Abeokuta, Ore in Ondo, Ogun, Gombe, Taraba, Opa in Ondo, Maiduguri, Ipetumodu in Osun, Ilorin, Owo in Ondo, Katsina, Alimosho in Lagos, Jigawa, Ibadan, Lekki in Lagos, and Ikorodu in Lagos represent the diverse tapestry of cities across Nigeria.

In our November survey, the average price for a 12.5kg cylinder of cooking gas in Nigeria was ₦13,190. However, by December, prices took a promising turn, dropping to an average of ₦12,253, showcasing a noteworthy decrease of ₦937. This reduction signifies a 7.10% decrease in prices from November to December, marking a positive shift in affordability and accessibility for consumers. The decline can be largely attributed to the elimination of import duty and VAT on imported LPG, constituting approximately 12.5% of the landing cost. Additionally, the FX rate showed some relief, dropping from its peak of 1300 in the parallel market in October and November to around 1200 in December.
