People and relevant officials know that winter season is full of challenges and problems and fighting such problems need precondition plans that already must take by relevant organs.

Some sellers and contributors of liquid gas in capital Kabul claiming that the main cause of increasing gas price are producers and wholesaler of gas.
Because of free market no government organs has taken responsibility regarding the issue, government officials believe that trade supports in free market.

Recently, Afghanistan Oil and Gas Enterprise Department has active dozens of branches for supplying liquid gas in Kabul city by half price considering the market, but the number of branches are less and cannot meet the needs of a city with several millions population.
