According to a statement from the finance ministry, the government had taken into account suggestions to adjust petroleum prices somewhat in order to reflect changes in worldwide pricing as well as currency rate fluctuations.
The ministry added that the petroleum levy has been reduced to a minimum to help customers.
Personal transportation vehicles run on Petrol. Despite being an alternative fuel, Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) has been sold at all CNG stations in place of compressed natural gas (CNG).
There is a scarcity at CNG stations as well since Pakistan has not made arrangements for LNG imports. The general people is now without access to any alternate fuel sources.
In distant parts of Pakistan, such as in the north, where liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) is not readily available for cooking, kerosene oil is frequently utilized.
In isolated regions of the nation, the Pakistani Army also makes use of kerosene oil.
The significant price increase will intensify the inflationary strain on the underprivileged who used it for cooking.
