In a surprising twist for the already-burdened masses of Pakistan, hopes for a petrol price drop are dashed as recent reports unveil an unforeseen surge in petroleum costs, creating a mixed bag of news for consumers. Brace yourselves for an unfolding narrative in the petroleum market over the next fortnight of November.
Picture this: the crystal ball of forecasts reveals an upward trajectory for petrol prices, with whispers of a daunting Rs3.18 per litre hike. Should these speculations materialize, the pump price for petrol is set to skyrocket from its current perch at Rs283.38 to an eye-watering Rs286.56 per litre as reported by Samaa TV.
Yet, amid the petrol storm, a silver lining emerges for high-speed diesel (HSD), poised for a substantial cut of Rs8.30 per litre. Hold onto your seats as the anticipated decrease aims to drive the diesel price down to Rs294.88 from its existing Rs303.18.
The plot thickens as the seesaw effect continues with kerosene oil, expected to bask in the glow of a welcomed reduction to Rs205.42 per litre from its current Rs211.03.
This translates to a comforting Rs5.61 per litre dip. Likewise, light diesel oil (LDO) steps into the spotlight with projections hinting at a noteworthy cut of Rs8.33 per litre, potentially lowering its rate to Rs181.13 per litre from the prevailing Rs189.46.
Buckle up, Pakistan, as the petroleum price rollercoaster takes us on a ride through the highs and lows of the fuel market in the coming weeks!
Why Price is Increasing?
The orchestrators of this intricate dance of price fluctuations are none other than the currents of government taxes and adjustments, intricately choreographed against the backdrop of the ever-undulating US dollar exchange rate.
What adds a layer of intrigue to this economic ballet is the tantalizing possibility that the current petrol price could hold steady, a strategic move driven by outstanding forex adjustments, according to whispers from insider sources.
But fear not, for there may be a glimmer of hope shimmering on the horizon, especially for the high-speed diesel aficionados.
Brace yourselves as an anticipated and substantial drop of Rs10 per litre promises to sway in their favour, a silver lining amidst the economic ebb and flow. Stay tuned as the intricate interplay between government strategies and consumer fortunes unfolds in this economic saga.
