The survey conducted in June across various states and cities in Nigeria provided valuable insights into the retail prices of LPG (cooking gas) nationwide. Several key factors contributed to the observed decrease in prices. One significant factor was the government's removal of Value Added Tax (VAT) on LPG, which directly reduced the overall cost for consumers. Also, the government's initiative to distribute cooking gas cylinders for free played a crucial role in lowering prices. This measure not only alleviated the initial financial burden on consumers but also encouraged wider adoption of LPG, thereby increasing demand and driving down costs through economies of scale. These proactive government policies have collectively contributed to making cooking gas more affordable and accessible to households across Nigeria. This reduction in the average price of LPG is a welcome development, offering some relief to consumers amidst fluctuating energy costs. The data provides a comprehensive overview of the LPG market across Nigeria, highlighting key trends and differences in pricing across various regions.
