Abstract: Today, Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) has become an unavoidable part of the urban households. Irrespective of the fact whether it be low/middle/high income family, they perceive cooking gas or LPG in the category of must spend or an unavoidable expenditure. This paper, based on a primary survey conducted among 500 urban households, analyses the extent of use of LPG and the conservation practices adopted for conserving LPG. The study found out a knowledge gap in conserving LPG during cooking and identifies a need for popularizing conservation techniques to conserve LPG, which is a non-renewable energy source.
