New Delhi : Price of non-subsidised cooking gas LPG was today hiked by Rs 16.50 per cylinder  and that of jet fuel by over half-a-per cent after international oil prices surged due to the ongoing Iraq crisis.

The price of non-subsidised LPG, which customers buy after using up their quota of 12 subsidised cylinders, was raised by Rs 16.50 per 14.2-kg cylinder, the first hike in six months.

Each non-subsidised 14.2-kg cooking gas cylinder will now cost Rs 922.50 in Delhi, up from Rs 906, according to Indian Oil Corp (IOC), the nation’s largest oil firm.

A subsidised LPG cylinder in Delhi costs Rs 414.
