Despite Significant Reduction in Petroleum Prices, Inflation Persists

Faisalabad: Despite a notable decrease in petroleum product prices, inflation persists as vegetables, meat, and other daily essentials have gone out of reach for the low-income population.

According to reports, shopkeepers are charging prices according to their own will rather than adhering to the government-set prices. The local administration has not taken any action against these mafias.

Sources indicate that, in the Sunday and other utility bazaars, the prices of items have only slightly decreased. Customers are expressing concerns about the poor quality of items. Last month, petroleum product prices were reduced by up to 40 rupees per liter, and orders were issued to the provincial governments and district administrations to lower the prices of food items to pass on the benefits to the public. However, it seems that these directives have not been enforced.

In the open market, potatoes are being sold for 90 to 116 rupees per kilogram, onions from 85 to 120, tomatoes for 114 to 160 rupees per kilogram, while garlic from Quetta is available for 415 to 540 rupees per kilogram, and local garlic is available for 265 to 300 rupees per kilogram.
