Islamabad: Petroleum Division sources disclosed on Friday “As the fall in global oil prices, petroleum prices in Pakistan are going to decrease up to Rs.30″.
While there is no sales tax on any petroleum products, there is a levy of Rs50 per litre for fuel. In the country, a litre of petrol now costs Rs224.8.
The national fuel requirements will send to the Petroleum Division by the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) once it completes its recommendation by December 15 according to officials.
The premier and the finance minister will subsequently discuss the suggestions of OGRA.
