ISLAMABAD: The caretaker government has increased prices of petroleum products by up to Rs20 per litre for the next fortnight amid a rise in global oil rates.
“Petroleum prices in the international market have increased during the last fortnight. As a result the consumer prices in Pakistan are also being revised,” the Finance Division said in a statement late Tuesday.
The petrol has been increased by Rs17.50 per litre while high speed diesel (HSD) hiked by Rs20 per litre.
The new fuel prices are effective from August 16.
