The Petroleum Dealers Association of Pakistan has announced a nationwide strike on Monday (July 18), demanding a rise in dealers’ margin at six percent, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

Petroleum dealers in a meeting deliberated on the strike and negotiations with the government and took the decision to go for a strike

The association said in the wake of the closure of petrol pumps masses will be suffered.

Petrol is now available at Rs230.24 per litre, diesel at Rs236 per litre, kerosene oil at Rs196.45 and light diesel oil (LDO) at Rs 191.44/litre.
