The government last week raised the prices of gas produced from old fields, called APM gas, to USD 8.57 per million British thermal units from USD 6.1, news agency PTI reported. The rates for gas produced from difficult fields were hiked to USD 12.46 from USD 9.92 per mmBtu.

Citing the high volatility in APM gas prices, experts have called for a need to revisit the domestic gas price formula and introduce floor/ceiling price for several reasons.
