It bears mentioning that we have posted exact Petrol Prices as mentioned in the official notification (which is also attached for reference), however, there is an error in the notification while calculating the new petrol rates. The post will be updated as soon as an official correction is made to the notification.
The new Petrol Prices in Pakistan will take effect from 1 January 2022 and remain in place until 15 January 2022.
It is pertinent to mention that Prices of Crude Oil have gone down globally during the last few weeks but the Government has failed to provide the public with the much needed relief.
Since the PTI Government likes comparison with other countries in the region, we should mention that Petrol Prices in India have been massively slashed as well in several states.
