‘Now we have the cheapest fuel cost compared to other states in South Asia’

Islamabad (Web Desk): Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that now Pakistan has the “cheapest fuel cost compared to other states in South Asia”.


“We have further reduced petrol, light diesel oil, kerosine oil prices. Now we have the cheapest fuel cost compared to other states in South Asia. India is almost exactly double. Bangladesh, Sri Lanka & Nepal are all 50 to 75 percent more expensive than us,” said PM Khan in a tweet soon after the government announced to decrease the prices of petroleum products.

The federal government on Sunday reduced the price of petrol by Rs7.06 per liter for the month of June.

Following the notification issued by the finance ministry, the price of petrol came down from Rs81.58 to Rs74.52 per litre. However, the government regulator has slightly increased the price of high-speed diesel (HSD) from Rs80.10 to Rs80.15 per litre.
