Previously the petrol price was around all time high figure for Pakistan, however now all the previous records broken and petrol price is now on its all time high by the margin of 8 to 10 Rupees. This is huge burden on people of Pakistan who are already feeling the aftershocks of struggling economy of Pakistan. In past few months inflation increased on overwhelming rate and this increase in Petrol price will only make things worse.
The new prices are already applicable from April 16, 2023 and will remain in effect until the end of month, when the prices will again be reviewed by the govt for the first two weeks of next month.
