Cooking gas!

My mother in law now has cooking gas! For awhile (a few weeks I think) she didn't have any and so was cooking outside using charcoal. Cambodia used to buy gas from a near by country but around the same time we stopped exporting rice, they stopped selling us gas. The price of gas in Phnom Penh seemed to double overnight, and in the province where she lives they ran out altogether. I think now we are buying it from another country, which is further away. So gas prices are down a bit , but still more than the original price.
