Pricing Adjustment Mechanism for Auto-LPG at Dedicated LPG Filling Stations

The ceiling price (P) of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) at dedicated LPG filling stations comprises two elements, namely LPG international price (A) and LPG operating price (B). The ceiling price is determined by the pricing formula: P = A + B. The upward and downward movements of LPG international price (A) are directly reflected on the pump prices at dedicated LPG filling stations. Apart from the yearly adjustment according to the year-on-year rate of change of the Composite Consumer Price Index (C) for the previous year, the LPG operating price (B) is fixed throughout the 21-year contractual period.

1) Movements of LPG international price (A)

The LPG international prices (HK$/litre) used in the pricing formula, which are calculated from the monthly contract prices of LPG from Saudi Arabia, are as follows:

 

2) Year-on-year rate of change of the Composite Consumer Price Index (C)

The LPG operating price (B) will be adjusted on the first day of February every year according to the year-on-year rate of change of the Composite Consumer Price Index (C) for the previous year. The past year-on-year rate of change of the Composite Consumer Price Indices are as follows:

 

3) Ceiling price of LPG

The calculated LPG ceiling prices (HK$/litre) for respective dedicated LPG filling stations are as follows:

Remark: The pricing formula, which determines the LPG ceiling price for dedicated LPG filling stations, comprises two elements, namely the LPG international price and LPG operating price. The values of these two elements are calculated to several decimal places. According to the contract, LPG ceiling price is the sum of these two elements quoted to the nearest cent. Since the LPG operating prices of dedicated LPG filling stations are different, there will be differences in the LPG ceiling prices at these stations.
