The caretaker government has increased the prices of petroleum products considerably. The decision was taken on the evening of Saturday 30th on June. Here are the new prices.
|New Prices – PKR||Old Prices – PKR||Difference – PKR|
|Petrol (92 RON)||Rs99.50 per litre||Rs91.96 per litre||Rs7.54|
|Diesel High Speed||Rs119.31 per litre||Rs105.31 per litre||Rs14.0|
|Kerosene oil||Rs87.70 per litre||Rs84.34 per litre||Rs3.36|
|Light diesel||Rs80.91 per litre||Rs74.99 per litre||Rs5.92|
OGRA had proposed the increase in the prices of petrol by Rs7.55 per litre, diesel by Rs14 per litre, kerosene oil by Rs3.36 per litre and light diesel oil by Rs5.92 per litre.
The official statement announcing the price increase said,
“The increase in the petroleum prices is caused due to increase in petroleum prices in international market and depreciation of rupee against US dollar,”
It would not be wrong to say that the decision will be heavily criticised by all sorts of concerned parties. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
