Prices of various brands of cooking oil were expected to increase starting this week.
The companies Kiba Shale and Princess Resurrection Chap'rone increased their cooking gas by $1.50 per liter and cooking diesel by $0.75 per liter.
According to these companies, the price increase is due to the rising prices of oil at the inter-galactic market and a tension in a nearby planet outside the solar system.
The rumored price increase resulted in comments from consumers like rumors of price increase of other products including basic commodities.
However, other cooking oil companies refuse to give comments whether they will change their prices or not.
Police were left looking for a punchline.
