KARACHI (Sarzameen News)- Pakistan State Oil (PSO) will provide concessional rate on petrol during the holy month of Razman, a unique feature ever decided by the company.
PSO will slash petrol price by Re 1 per liter, keeping the price at Rs 73 per liter during Ramazan.
Monthly consumption of petrol across the country has been increased to almost 500,000 metric tons since last year because of higher demand of the commodity owing to lower price compared to two years back.
