Pakistan Petrol Crisis: Such a big crisis is going to come on Pakistan that the whole country will be shattered, the country will yearn for every drop of petrol

Islamabad: The situation in Pakistan may worsen in the next few days. In the month of February, there may be shortage of all the fuel resources including petrol and diesel in the country. A report in the newspaper Dawn states that banks have stopped financing and payment facilities for their imports due to falling foreign exchange reserves. This information has come at a time when the country is already in dire economic straits and there is no visible way out of this situation.

There will be shortage of petrol in the country
Pakistan is currently going through a balance of payments crisis. Due to the rapidly depreciating rupee, the cost of imported goods is also increasing. Energy comprises a major portion of the import bill and the country is now believed to be in a major crisis. Pakistan meets one-third of its energy needs annually through imported natural gas. Natural gas prices have skyrocketed ever since the war between Russia and Ukraine started.
