People of Karnataka are certainly in a shock presently. Wondering why? It turns out that the price of LPG is bordering around Rs 1000 on the non-subsidized domestic LPG. In a place called Bidar, each cylinder was sold for Rs 1,015. Muttering WTF under your breath? Certainly, the residents of Karnataka are doing that! Talking about Bidar, the price of a gas cylinder was Rs 721 in April 2018. However, it seems that it has now crossed Rs 1000 in just a few months. Naturally, people had much to say about this LPG price hike.
