Pakistan; ‘No Shortage’ of Petrol or Diesel

There is no nationwide shortage of gasoline or fuel, according to the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA).

The Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) has vehemently denied reports of a nationwide shortage of gasoline and fuel.

Imran Ghaznavi, an OGRA spokesperson, confirmed in a news release that “sufficient stockpiles of petrol and diesel are available across the country after a large number of people flocked to the pumps.”

According to him, the nation had enough gasoline and diesel supplies to last 18 and 37 days, respectively.

Further, a ship carrying 101,000 (tonnes) of gasoline is at berth/outer anchorage.

According to Ghaznavi, the neighborhood refineries were “supplying the demand for petroleum products in the manner they were supposed to.”.

As news spread of a gasoline and diesel shortage yesterday, people began to crowd the gas stations. According to reports, almost all gas stations in Karachi, Lahore, and Peshawar had long lines of cars.

According to the chairman of the Petroleum Dealers Association of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, 50% of Peshawar’s gas stations lack fuel.

Rumours gained momentum when the country’s power restoration was delayed for an extraordinary amount of time.

Earlier, Pakistan State Oil (PSO) said there were “ample supplies available in the supply chain as per OGRA mandated days cover,” debating rumours of fuel shortages.
