Aside from reducing the prices of CNG, the government at the beginning of this year also reduced the prices of oil products by up to PKR 5 per litre.
Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA), a few days ago, recommended slashing the prices by up to PKR 13.5 per litre. However, the government didn’t act as per recommended by the authority, but still gave incentive to the people. The Ministry of Finance has issued a notification in this regard and announced the new prices for the month of January 2019.
The new prices of the oil products are as follow:
Petrol: Rs.90.97 per litre
High-Speed Diesel: Rs.106.68 per litre
Light Diesel Oil: Rs.75.28 per litre
Kerosene Oil: Rs.82.98 per litre
