Analysis (Petrol Price in Pakistan)

Remember when we recently said that gasoline prices are likely to drop due to the drop in global oil prices? OK. The price of a barrel in the OPEC fell from $87.83 to $83.08 in the last 15 days. Thus, the government passes benefits to local consumers.

Also, if the crisis in the Middle East worsens, there is a possibility of an increase in global oil prices at any time, which may lead to an increase in prices in Pakistan.
