Notification of Petroleum Prices by Finance Division

Minister for Finance and Revenue Senator Ishaq Dar made the announcement during a televised address. He stated that the government is trying to provide relief to the masses during every fortnightly review.

The Finance Division later issued a statement, saying that the government has decided to reduce the existing prices of petroleum products. So that people can take benefits and get maximum relief after the reduction. 

The finance minister has appealed to the transporters to provide fair relief to the masses in light of the price reduction, as the POL products rate affects a host of other commodities.

This appeal comes as the nation faces runaway inflation, with a historic high of 36.4%, which is the fastest in South Asia, even surpassing the defaulted nation of Sri Lanka.
