Gas traders attribute the price decrease to the fall in prices in the world market for January, to around USD1,015 per tonne, USD147.5 per tonne down from the month before.

In December, domestic gas prices increased by between VND70,000 and VND80,000 (USD3.31 to USD3.78) per 12-kilo canister, due to the sharp price increases in the world market.

That was considered by many the largest price hike in 2013.
