Federal authorities are set to review petrol and diesel prices in line with global trends in the upcoming fortnightly assessment on February 15. With escalating tensions in the Middle East, international oil prices have surged, potentially leading to a hike in petroleum rates in Pakistan.
Following the February 8 elections, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has released provisional results, showing PTI-backed candidates leading in National Assembly constituencies, trailed by PML-N and PPP.
The formation of national and provincial governments will commence after the official result announcement.
As the caretaker government navigates the transition, the expectation looms for revised petroleum prices for the latter half of February 2024. It’s anticipated that, amidst the governmental transition, adjustments in fuel costs will be announced.
