Ministry of Commerce to fix price of gas in Kabul

The Ministry of Commerce has promised to hold a meeting with private sector representatives to fix the price of liquefied gas in Kabul.

This comes as the price of gas remains high in some areas of Kabul, while it has plummeted to 42 AFN per kilo in most parts of the city.

Some residents have complained that the liquefied gas is sold at 55 AFN per kilo in their areas.

“This is a city where nobody asks questions. Everybody sells things at prices they wish,” Pajhwok Afghan News (PAN) quotes a resident.

Kabul residents have called on the government to control prices of gas.

Liquefied gas price had reached 75 AFN a few months ago. The price dropped to 60 AFN after the government warned gas companies that were involved in price hiking.

The further decline in gas price is linked to world markets trends and increase in imports.

The main companies importing gas to Afghanistan include Sun Gas, Kamal Nabizada, Ghazanfar Group, Gas Group, Baradaran-e-Sahrayee, Sarhadi Group, Younas Shekib, Yama Petrol, Walid Haseeb, Rameen Said, Afghan National Petroleum, Farahi Group, Kefayat Group, Anar Darah, Khurasan Gas, Rahmanian, Nabizada, Ekhlas Group, Haji Bismillah, Haidari and several other companies.
