Petroleum product shortage endured in the country after petrol has become rare at most petrol pumps in many cities of the country, which is causing severe difficulties to the citizens as well as to the transporters.
Due to non-supply from within the country, most of the petrol pumps in Karachi, Lahore, Quetta, and other cities closed, and those who have petrol available have jacked up their prices.
Karachi has also been facing a shortage of petrol for the last three days and petrol not available at most petrol pumps in the city. This led citizens to fetch expensive high octane at the pumps.
Moreover, Karachi facing a shortage for the past three days, while some stations are selling expensive high-octane to people.
Furthermore, According to All Pakistan Petroleum Dealers Association president, Pakistan State Oil is supplying petroleum products to stations, adding that some companies did not buy petrol at lower prices.
Likewise in Balochistan, the shortage of fuel supply led to infrequent supply at Quetta pumps. Long queues of vehicles waited to buy the limited supply of petrol from three to four stations at high prices.
