From the web: “Gas prices increase takes its toll on Egyptian households”

A hike in the price of oil products on Saturday saw the butane gas canisters often used for cooking in Egypt rise in price to LE50 for residential use and LE100 for commercial use. In March 2013, they sold for LE5 and LE8, respectively, thus seeing 1,000 per cent price hike over the past five years.
