PETALING JAYA – There is no truth to rumours that the price of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) will rise next year, says the Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry.
According to the Ministry, several local media outlets had reported that LPG prices would be increasing by as much as RM7 per canister next year.
However, the Ministry denied these claims.
“These reports that have gone viral are considered irresponsible and create an atmosphere of panic among consumers.
“The Ministry gives its assurance that LPG prices will remain the same as they are today,” read a statement issued by the ministry on Friday.
It urged all parties to first refer to it before publishing any information on such matters. – The Star Online
