Another price-hike is likely for the coming month as reports suggest that rates of petroleum products could go up by as much as Rs8 per litre, reported Aaj News on Saturday.

As per details, petrol price is likely to go up by Rs6.5 per litre, High-Speed Diesel (HSD) by Rs8 per litre, kerosene by Rs7 per litre and light diesel by Rs6.5 per litre from November 1.

The upcoming hike is expected to be at the current rates of levies and taxes imposed on POL products. However, the government can give relief to the people by adjusting the taxes and levies.

The final approval will be given by Prime Minister Imran Khan, after which the new prices will be announced by the Ministry of Finance on Sunday.

The prices of petroleum products are fixed by the government for 15 days. On October 15, the government increased the price of petrol by Rs10.49 per litre, an over 8% increase that took the rate to Rs137.79 per litre.
