The average price of the butane cylinder will fall by 4.98% from next Tuesday, to 13.17 euros, compared to the 13.86 euros it currently costs.
This decline, the third consecutive, is mainly due to the applications of outstanding surplus of the previous two months (7.23 cents per kilo), which compensates the increase experienced by the cost of raw materials (2.9%) and freight (22.9%), and the limit of maximum variation of 5% between two updates that prevents the price of the bottle from falling even more this bimester.
Therefore, a surplus of 0.7 euro cents per kilogram is also generated, which will be applied in successive quarters, indicated Europa Press in sources from the Ministry for the Ecological Transition.

In the last revision of March a 4.87% was reduced, while in January it fell 4.96%, month in which it ended a series of three consecutive increases, after the rise of 4.93% registered in November and 4.95% and 4.9% in the September and July revisions, respectively.
The new price of the butane bottle will be valid for two months, until the third Tuesday of next July, when it will be revised again.
