However, no official notification by the government has been released yet.
The prices of petroleum products are expected to hit an all-time high in Pakistan as the government is likely to increase the fuel prices by Rs18 per liter for the rest of February today.
According to sources, a further increase in oil prices in the global market as a result of Russia-Ukraine hostilities could also affect fuel prices in Pakistan. Petrol prices are expected to rise by Rs13 per liter and diesel by Rs18 per liter, the sources said.
Currently, petrol is being sold in the country at Rs147.83 per liter, high-speed diesel (HSD) at Rs144.62, and light diesel oil (LDO) at Rs114.54 per liter.
