LAHORE: Petrol has vanished across the Punjab following the government’s announcement to cut prices of petroleum products.
On Friday, the government reduced the price of petrol by Rs10 per litre.
Although a large number of people were seen at most of Lahore’s pumps, there was no availability of petrol.
Some pump owners blamed the electricity load shedding while others put the blame on oil tankers.
Ironically, some petrol pumps did not even try to change the rate list.
According to reports, petrol pump owners have created an artificial shortage by suspending supply.
Urging the government to take notice, people have questioned why there is shortage only when prices come down. SAMAA
