ISLAMABAD: The government may announce a massive decline in the prices of petroleum products amid a drop in international oil rates and depreciation in the dollar rate.
According to a Daily Jang report, the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) has started working on a new summary which is likely to propose a Rs15 drop in POL prices.
The sources said that the government may provide relief to the masses by decreasing the petroleum levy and other taxes.

Ogra will send a summary to the finance ministry on August 13 for fixing the new prices, after which the new prices will be announced on August 15 following the prime minister’s approval.
