The shortage of petroleum products faced in the country after petrol has become uncommon at most fuel pumps in many of the country’s cities, creating significant difficulties for both the people and the transporters.
Because of non-supply from inside the country, most of the petrol pumps in Karachi, Lahore, Quetta, and other cities have closed down, and those with available petrol have jacked up their prices.
Karachi has also faced a fuel shortage for the last three days and most of the city’s petrol pumps do not have petrol available. This led citizens to fetch high-octane expensive pumps.
In addition, for the past three days, Karachi has faced a shortage, while some stations sell expensive high-octane to humans.
Moreover, Pakistan State Oil supplies petroleum products to stations according to All Pakistan Petroleum Dealers Association president, adding that some companies did not buy petrol at lower prices.
Likewise, the scarcity of fuel supply in Balochistan led to unusual supply at Quetta pumps. Long vehicle queues waited to buy a limited supply of petrol at high prices from three to four stations.
