Fuel Prices in Pakistan
Fuel prices play a vital role in the country's economic growth, as an increase or decrease in rates has a direct impact on the level of inflation.
Earlier, oil prices were revised on a monthly basis. However, the government decided to establish a fortnightly pricing mechanism for Fuel products and shifted from the price benchmark based on Pakistan State Oil (PSO) oil imports to Platts indexes.
The switch from monthly to fortnightly review of petroleum product prices comes in the wake of a demand of the oil industry and in order to shield it from inventory losses.
