Today Petrol Price In Pakistan
Today petrol price in Pakistan is set at Rs 272.95 per liter and Diesel price in Pakistan has been set at Rs. 273.40 per liter.
According to the global trend, the caretaker government of Pakistan is likely to increase the petrol prices till the second fortnight of August 2023. It should be noted that a few days ago the price of crude oil in the world market had reached the highest level of 7 months.
Media reports have claimed that petroleum prices are likely to increase by Rs 24 per liter in the second half of the month of August. Another shock for the inflation-weary public facing high food prices. Since fuel prices directly affect the transport and agriculture sectors, any increase will further burden the public.
