The sudden increase in oil prices in Pakistan has caused a lot of shock to the people. The government of Pakistan has increased the prices of petroleum products including petrol and diesel. This increase in oil prices has been from 27 percent to 66 percent depending on the product.
According to a report by Pakistani newspaper Dawn, the current price of petrol has been increased by 25.58 rupees in a single day. After this, its price per liter is 100.10 Pakistani rupees. Earlier petrol price was Rs 74.52 per liter. The government has attributed the increase to rising prices in the international market.
Diesel has become more expensive than petrol in Delhi and Pakistan. Here the price of high-speed diesel has increased by Rs 21.31 to Rs 101.46 per liter. The price of kerosene has also increased by Rs 23.50 to Rs 59.06 per liter. Light diesel oil (LDO) has been increased by Rs 17.84 and now its price has been increased to Rs 55.98. Earlier, it was priced at Rs 38.14.
According to the report of Dawn, the move to increase the prices of petrol and diesel is unexpected, because the prices were increased only last month and the prices were to remain in force till June 30. Many people are surprised by this move of the Pakistan government because it was out of the schedule and was not inspired by any step of the oil sector regulator, which is a normal process.
Most observers have agreed that this step has been taken to curb supply shortages in many parts of the country due to a pricing dispute between the government and industry. Severe oil shortage has been reported in many parts of Pakistan.
