Petrol prices to remain unchanged for the first 15 days of November

Petrol prices to remain unchanged for the first 15 days of November!

The development comes on Saturday after Prime Minister Imran Khan has rejected the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority, OGRA’s summary to increase petrol prices by another Rs11.53 per litre.

According to a statement issued by the Prime Minister’s Office, the PM has maintained that the burden of rising fuel prices in the international market would not be laid on the people.

“The government is prioritising relief for the citizens instead of passing on the impact of global inflationary pressures,” the statement read. 

“The additional burden of higher prices, as suggested by OGRA, which would have been transferred to the citizenry, will instead be borne by the government,” it added.

The existing prices of Petrolium products are as follows:

High-Speed Diesel (HSD)

Kerosene (SKO)

The PTI led government had previously  increased the per litre cost of petrol by Rs10.49 and high-speed diesel by Rs12.44 on October 16 for the next fortnight.
