Govt jacks up petrol price by over Rs6 for the next 15 days of August

ISLAMABAD: The Government of Pakistan Monday jacked up the price of petrol by Rs6.72 per litre for the next fortnight.

While the government raised the price of petrol, it slashed the price of diesel by Rs0.51.

In line with the new changes, the price of petrol will be Rs233.91 per litre, diesel will be Rs244.44 per litre, kerosene oil will be sold for Rs199.40 per litre, and the price of light diesel oil will be Rs191.75 per litre.
