The expected dip in petrol prices aligns with the recent decline in international oil prices. As of December 2023, the current petrol rate in Pakistan stands at Rs267.34 per litre, with diesel priced at Rs276.21 per litre.
In the previous price review, there was significant relief for Pakistani consumers, as the petrol price saw a reduction of Rs14 per litre, while the diesel price experienced a decrease of Rs13.50 per litre. As the interim government considers global market dynamics and currency fluctuations, these adjustments aim to balance the impact on consumers in response to changes in the broader economic landscape.
