The price of per litre petrol has been jacked up by Rs9.66 per litre for the next 15 days following a surge in international crude rates.

However, the price of high-speed diesel (HSD) has been slashed by Rs3.32 per litre.

In a notification issued on Sunday, the Finance Division said the new fuel prices will come into effect from April 1.

“The price of Petrol (Motor Gasoline) has increased in the international market during the last fortnight, while the price of HSD has marginally declined,” it said in the notification.

The statement further said the price adjustments are in line with government’s policy of passing on the variations of prices in the international market to the domestic market. “The consumer price of HSD has accordingly been decreased once again, after a downward revision in the middle of March, 2024.”
