Pakistan is likely to face a petrol shortage in the coming days as the Oil Tankers Association deadline for meeting demands ends today (Monday).

There were reports of suspension of fuel supply to airports, Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Attock, and Gilgit Baltistan.

The statement was centered on the association’s meetings with the petroleum ministry for the past three years related to the quota after the beginning of the white oil pipeline and demands. According to the contractors, the meetings did not yield any results.

The association, which said the petroleum ministry and OGRA would be responsible for the people’s suffering, claimed that they could not continue their business amid such an inflation that currently stands at 27%.


The shutdown call was based on the fulfillment of demands.

A 65% share for road transport after running the white oil pipeline, a 100% increase in local fares and a 50% hike in long trip fare, and a revival of old vehicles were the three demands.
