EASYGAS PRICES

New gas supplier Easygas said that its prices per cylinder for this month would be the following:

Door-to-door delivery: 10 Kgs - €13.40; 15 Kgs - €19.50 and 25 Kgs - €31.50

Fixed point sales: 10 Kgs - €13.00; 15 Kgs - €19.00 and 25 Kgs - €30.80

It said that in view of the ongoing controversy over the refund paid on gas cylinders, door-to-door deliveries were still not being made and sales are currently only being made from its premises in Valletta Road, Luqa, Alfsons Enterprises - Manuel Magri Street, Hamrun and the Easygas Malta shop in Naxxar Road, San Gwann.

The company insisted that the authorities had to ensure that the people were able to enjoy the benefits of market competition.
