The prices of petrol and diesel are likely to go up by over Pakistani Rs 5 per litre from Sunday for the next fortnight, local media reported citing sources on Saturday.

The Petroleum Division has received a summary regarding an upward revision of prices of petroleum products, ARY News reproted.

According to the Pakistani media, the price of petrol may be jacked up by Pakistani Rs 5.15 per litre and that of high-speed diesel (HSD) by Pakistani Rs 5.65 per litre. An increase of Pakistani Rs 4/litre has been proposed in the price of light-speed diesel (LSD).
