According to ET, diesel is being sold for $1.03 a litre in India, the country at the top of the list in this region (prices recorded on 12th February). The reported price of petrol in Afghanistan on 12th February was $0.65 per litre. The prices are taken from the globalpetrolprices which records weekly rates of petroleum products of various countries across the globe.

Jam Kamal, the State Minister for Petroleum, said in an interview in December last year that the prices of petroleum products in Pakistan compared to other regional countries such as India and Sri Lanka are less. But according to the website data, countries like Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Bhutan are selling diesel at less price than in Pakistan.

    Jam Kamal sahsb seems have poured a Jam and doing Kamal job.

    India sells ULSD so their price seems OK keeping in mind their every other car is on diesel even the famous Swift or even City. As far as Pakistan kamal sahab forgot to tell, Pakistan has the cheapest fuel but also one of the lowest quality fuel in region .

  2. Exactly. Pakistan fuel is cheap, in every sense of the word!
