NEWS DESK THE price of a bottle of butane gas is to come down from 13.5 euros to 10.5 euros when the new quarter starts on April 1. Central Government Industry Minister, Miguel Sebastian said yesterday at a government committee meeting that the cheaper price will mean each bottle will cost 22.4 percent less than previously. He also said that natural gas is going to become cheaper but although it can be used as a primary material in generating electricity, power supply companies are not going to pass on the reduction in cost to their customers. With the price of a bottle of butane coming down by 3 euros, an average user will save 72 euros a year. According to the ministry, this is the largest fall-off in butane price since 1993. The price revision is based on calculation of raw material, plus transportation costs and the strength of the euro against the dollar.
