According to a comparative statement, the price of a liter of gasoline in Pakistan is $ 0.70, while in Sri Lanka $ 0.83, Nepal $ 0.95, Bangladesh $ 1.05, India $ 1.26, China $ 1, 03, UK $ 1.70, and Germany $ 1.64.
Meanwhile, a senior official familiar with developments in the oil sector told that oil rates in India revised daily, conveying a one-minute change in global oil prices to the public and resellers.
On the contrary, he said, oil prices in Pakistan were revised every two weeks with the government’s greatest efforts to bear the brunt of the upward variation in the international market on its own, but sometimes a small part had to be passed on to the masses extremely convincing situation.
This also reflected in the last two weeks when Prime Minister Imran Khan rejected the Oil and Gas Regulating Authority (OGRA) summary of rising oil prices, saying people should be relieved.
