Retailers were stressing that there is no shortage of LPG cylinders in the country and there is sufficient gas reserves to meet the local demand.

India's largest fuel retailer Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOC) said it reported a 20% increase in sales in April.  The price of LPG cylinders in India is mainly dependent on two factors - the international prices of LPG, the US dollar and the exchange rate of the rupee.
