Last night Pakistani government has hiked petrol prices at a maximum level all of a sudden. There is an increase of 11 Rs. on 1 litre petrol and 9.5 Rs. on the same amount of diesel. It has been taken very alarming by the society as poor people have to use public transport for reaching their work destinations and other locations. Hike in the diesel prices will increase the prices of everything, i.e. food items, stationary items, grocery, travelling, daily use items and so and so…….
No doubt that there is an international increase in the fuel prices these days and all those countries, where fuel is purchased from oil producing countries, are suffering a lot due to the hike in fuel prices. However, our government must pay due consideration to find fuel resources in Pakistan as according to researchers lot of petroleum reserves are available in Balochistan and if explored they can help a lot to help nation in coming out of this very very adverse situation.
