This is the new price of the butane cylinder from January to June 2023

Date: May 31, 2023 Time: 21:34:34

Rising energy costs as a result of the war in Ukraine and inflation have frightened consumers for months. Hence, there are those who celebrate that the price of the 12.5-kilogram butane cylinder has dropped from last Tuesday, January 17, 2023, and until next June, to 17.67 euros. This was published by the Official State Gazette (BOE), as it is an aid that is contemplated in the anti-crisis measure package that will succeed the Government of Spain in the Council of Ministers of December 2022 and that entered into force on January 1 of this year.

The cost of the butane cylinder is regulated by the Administration and is calculated with a bi-monthly review, on the third Tuesday of the month. The Executive set this price on June 25, 2022 at a maximum of 19.55 euros, through a Royal Decree that was urgently approved. That is why the bottle is the cheapest, regardless of which company it is hired from.

The last review was carried out on January 17, but the Government of Spain kept the maximum price of the butane pump frozen below 19.55 euros, for at least six more months. In addition, the maximum variation cannot exceed 5%, neither in increase nor in decrease, with respect to the previous price.

How much is a butane cylinder worth today?

The price of the standard 12.5-kilogram bottle contemplates the 0.015 euros per kilo of hydrocarbons tax and 21% VAT. Until January 17, it had a cost of 18.58 euros but, since then, it has been 17.67 euros, as established by the Executive.

This decrease of 5% -0.92 euros- is the second consecutive drop that occurs in the price, after the reduction of 19.55 euros -from May 17 to November 14, 2022- at 18, 58 euros in the November 2022 revision

How long does a butane cylinder last?

To determine the time that the butane cylinder lasts, the weather conditions must be taken into account. That is, in a temperate climate and with daily consumption, it can last about a month or a month and a half.

On the contrary, cold weather and the same consumption will cause it to be spent faster, in approximately a month. This is because cold weather causes gasification problems in the container, since butane gas has a freezing point of 0ºC. Cold combustion is not as effective as hot.
