August contract price of the US cgp set at 83.5 cents per lb, no report of settlement price of chemical grade propylene (cgp).

On September 17, Propylene prices for Far Eastern experience a step fall where as the European region remained stable. On the other hand prices for the US market saw a plunge in comparison to the earlier week.
