This is just the first of many increases. To make any dent in valuation, it should be at least $1 per liter. So 300 is more like it.

in dollar terms, petrol at 95 cents is still a lot cheaper than in India (120-130 cents depending upon state). Diesel at almost 100 is still about 10% cheaper than in India.

Inevitable!

That's how Indians are paying an equivalent of PKR 300 for a litre of petrol, without any protest.
Purchasing power matters too. With increased devaluation, purchasing power of PKR is way down. 50% down in a year. An average person has half the living standard of a year back.

These fu(k about doing silly things, increase this and increase that to please their foreign masters in the IMF instead of doing things that generate money like explore for oil in the Persian gulf/Arabian sea and the Runn of Kutch areas. We should be getting cheap oil from Russia and not bowing to the blood sucking IMF.
