Govt. Decides To Sustain Petroleum Prices

The government decided to keep the prices of petroleum products at their existing rates for the month of October.

The decision has been taken by Prime Minister Imran Khan so as not to burden the consumers with the sudden hike in prices.

Earlier, Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority had recommended increasing the prices in view of rising oil prices at the global level.

Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority recommended 4.10 rupees per litre increase in petrol prices and 4.41 rupees per litre in diesel prices.
