ISLAMABAD: The federal government allowed the Pakistan State Oil (PSO) an exchange rate adjustment of Rs9.92 per litre on petrol and Rs13.12 per litre on high-speed diesel (HSD) with effect from February 16 while keeping the petroleum levy (PL) rates on both products unchanged.

On January 29, there was no adjustment claim of PSO on petrol and Rs13.15 per litre on HSD.

The Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) ex-refinery sale price calculation reveals that petroleum prices were closed at US dollar/ Rs236.40 on January 27 which stood at Rs271.08 on February 15. The oil marketing companies (OMCs) had estimated that the petrol price would likely go up by Rs32.07 per litre and the price of HSD by Rs32.84 per litre due to the exchange rate.

Sources said that the government has absorbed the exchange rate adjustment in the rate of IFEM (inland freight equalisation margin) on both petroleum products by revising their rate downward.

However, dealers’ margin stands at Rs7 per litre, and the distance margins stands at Rs6.00 per litre. The ex-depot price of petrol went up by Rs22.20 to stand at Rs272.00 per litre on February 16 from Rs249.80 per litre on January 29, 2023.

On HSD, the average Platts with incidentals and duty increased by Rs13.09 to stand at Rs221.30 on February 16 from Rs208.21 per litre on January 29. In the case of HSD, PSO exchange adjustment down by three paisas (0.03) per litre to stand at Rs13.12 on February 16 from Rs13.15 per litre on January 29. The ex-refinery price of HSD worked out at Rs234.42 with an increase of Rs13.05 per litre.

The IFEM has reduced by Rs3.94 per litre to Rs6.76 per litre on February 16 from Rs9.33 per litre on January 29. Dealers’ margin on HSD stands at Rs7 per litre with distance margins at Rs5.34 per litre. The ex-depot price has increased by Rs17.20 from Rs262.80 to Rs280 per litre.
