SINGAPORE- Gas tariffs for households using City Gas will increase by 2.4 per cent or 0.43 cents per kilowatt hour (kwh), from May 1 to July 31.

City Gas on Friday (April 28) said that the hike was due to a 9.2 per cent increase in fuel costs compared with the previous quarter.

The revised gas tariffs were based on the Energy Market Authority (EMA), which is the gas industry regulator, and the new prices have been approved by EMA.

City Gas supplies town gas and natural gas to commercial and industrial customers.


Correction note: An earlier version of this story said the gas tariffs for households using City Gas will increase by 43 cents per kilowatt hour. It should have been 0.43 cents per kilowatt hour. We are sorry for the error.
