The All Pakistan CNG Association increased the price of natural gas by Rs15 per kg. According to All Pakistan CNG Association President Ghiyas Paracha, CNG will now be available at Rs180 per kg. He stated that the prices have been increased due to the valuation and rising prices of liquified natural gas (LNG). In Punjab, the price has increased by Rs8.
Paracha also mentioned that the increase in gas prices is due to the sales tax and the dollar value. Moreover, the association president complained about the hike and has asked for a reduction in price.
