CNG prices went up

Here’s another slap on the face by the government. I don’t understand why gas is getting expensive when it is produced locally (unlike oil), and why are we slaves to world bank? What’s next?

    3 Years back, we used to get Petrol (90 Octane) for the price of CNG today.

    This would discourage CNG users which is a cleaner cheaper fuel and which reduces the burden from the import bill.

    its simply demand and supply
    its a trend, watever ppl want in this country.. it becomes more and more expensive with time.. now that enough ppl have CNG in there cars ofcourse it’ll rise..
    its still the cheapest fuel
    btw: theres alot of money in it.. if ur running a CNG pump then you make twice the money with cng if ur running a similar size petrol pump
    Someone was telling me that on petrol out of Rs. 60 the amount of taxes that goto govt is somewhere around Rs. 17 per litre.. is that correct ??

    The international tariff structure of gas is that domestic gas proces are expensive than those used by the industries. Here in Pakistan, the trend is ulta (reverse). Gavernment is trying to remove this anamoly.

    Secondly, do you people remember last time when your parents told you to save the gas being burned un-necessarily in the stove or gysers?

    How many times we see a lock over burner stove, like the one we have on the telephone set?

    Judge what wastage we are incurring by use of future generation’s share of gas, today.

    Remember, gas is a nature’s gifted commudity that should be used judiciously!!!

    Umer: Someone didnt tell u the truth. Its actually 24 Rs (40 % of the petrol price) which goes to government. No wonder our fuel is more expensive than it is in the US and its even not the same quality.

    I do not think that the gas fields are Govt owned. And if they are private, this about it yourself. Why would you sell it to the Pak Govt when China is willing to pay you double the amount (NYSE Commodities rate)? Prices of energy have gone up globally. It doesnt make alot of difference even if is produced locally.

    And Saudia banning solar panels is a bunch-a-bull. In the US, you get subsidies to use Solar Panel. They are expensive. Americans are in no position to widely use solar let alone Karachites. You may have to get a license for it maybe because the Govt wants to know who is that rich to care about the enviroment! ;P
