 HCM City (VNA) – The retail price of gas in southern localities, including Ho Chi Minh City, will reduce by 1,667 VND (0.07 USD) per kg or 20,000 VND (0.88 USD) per 12kg cylinder from February 1, in comparison with that of January.

Consumers can buy a 12kg cylinder of PetroVietnam Gas, Vtgas, SP or Petrolimex at a price between 330,000 VND and 335,000 VND.

The decrease is attributed to a fall in the world’s gas price in February, which stands at 515 USD per tonne, down 65 USD per tonne compared with that of January.
