Due to the inflow of tourists in the northern districts, petrol is being sold at Rs 700 a litre

According to official source, the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) region has been struck hard by the petrol scarcity, with most filling stations in remote districts such as Swat and Kalam running out of fuel for many days.

Since Eidul Azha, the number of tourists visiting the country’s attractive northern regions has risen substantially, particularly in Swat, a popular hill station. According to reports, petrol is being sold in Swat for Rs700 a litre.

Thousands of tourists flocking to Swat’s scenic Kalam valley faced severe roadblocks, traffic bottlenecks, and gasoline shortages.

The same petrol shortage is being experienced in Gilgit Baltistan as well. The Chief Minister took notice of the regional petrol scarcity and directed the relevant agencies to fix the problem as quickly as feasible.

The Provincial Tourism Department had earlier today warned travellers to exercise caution due to rain anticipated in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

Tourists are being advised to take precautions for their safety amid the monsoon rains, according to a tourism agency official.

According to the agency, tourists to the province should avoid driving through flood waters and visiting rivers, rain drains, and other rainfall courses.
