Much like other commodities, local costs of LPG depend on the local market, including regional competition factors and the different costs of transporting fuel to different regions. Costs can also vary between regions, both between suppliers and (in the case of heating LPG) according to delivery costs for different customers. There is a regime in place to monitor competition in the UK marketplace and intervene where deemed necessary.
