The gas crisis in Pakistan is primarily due to a gap between the demand and supply of natural gas. The demand for gas has been increasing steadily, driven by population growth, industrial expansion, and changing lifestyle patterns. However, the supply of gas has not been able to keep up with this growing demand.
This has led to frequent gas shortages, particularly during the winter months when the demand for heating increases. This has resulted in difficulties for households in cooking, heating, and carrying out other daily activities. Industries that heavily rely on gas such as textiles and ceramics end up facing production disruptions and increased costs. To address this issue, it is crucial for the government and relevant authorities to invest in infrastructure development, explore new sources of gas, and promote energy conservation measures.
