New Delhi: Oil firms on Wednesday hiked prices of non-subsidised LPG, which consumers buy after exhausting their quota of 12, by Rs 21 per 14.2-kg bottle.

The three fuel retailers - Indian Oil Corporation, Hindustan Petroleum and Bharat Petroleum - revise jet fuel and non-subsidised LPG prices on the first day of every month, based on the average international price in the preceding month.

Non-subsidised cooking gas (LPG) now costs Rs 548.50 in Delhi as against Rs 527.50 previously.

The hike comes on the back of a Rs 18 per cylinder increase in price on May 1. Subsidised LPG costs Rs 419.18 per 14.2-kg cylinder in Delhi.

The move comes just a day after Petrol price was hiked by Rs 2.58 a litre and diesel by Rs 2.26 per litre, the second increase in rates this month.

Petrol will cost Rs 65.60 per litre in Delhi after the increase while diesel will cost Rs 53.93/litre. Prices were last hiked on May 17.
