ISLAMABAD: The federal government has issued notification for announcing the prices of petroleum products during the month of September, ARY News reported on Monday.
The federal authorities have maintained the prices of petroleum products during September after PM Imran Khan rejected the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) summary suggesting an increase in the rates.
According to the notification, the petrol price will be maintained at Rs103.97 per litre, Rs106.46 for high-speed diesel (HSD), Rs65.29 for kerosine oil and Rs62.86 for light diesel.

Earlier in the day, PM Imran Khan said in a statement, “The federal government will not increase fuel prices as people are already going through difficult times due to coronavirus and recent rainfalls and floods across the country.”
He further said that the incumbent government will not put more burden on flood-hit masses by increasing petroleum prices.
The Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (Ogra) in its summary had proposed an increase of about Rs5 per litre in the prices of petrol and HSD for the month of September.
