Massive Drop in Petrol Price Expected from 16th June


Petroleum product prices in Pakistan are anticipated to decrease by up to 9 rupees per liter starting from June 16. This expected reduction follows the recent budget announcement and has been estimated by sources within the oil marketing companies.

According to these sources, the price of petrol is projected to drop by approximately 9 rupees per liter. This substantial decrease is expected to provide much-needed relief to consumers who have been grappling with high fuel costs. Additionally, the price of diesel is likely to see a reduction of 4 rupees per liter. Kerosene, another essential fuel, is expected to experience a price cut of 2 rupees per liter.


The final prices will be determined by the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) based on the global oil prices recorded on June 13 and 14. The global market trends and international oil prices will play a crucial role in setting the new rates for petroleum products in the country.

This potential reduction in fuel prices comes as part of the government’s efforts to ease the financial burden on the public and stimulate economic activity by lowering transportation and production costs.

The expected price cuts in petrol, diesel, and kerosene will likely have a positive impact on various sectors, including agriculture, industry, and transportation, which rely heavily on these fuels.
