Hike in Price of petroleum challenged in LHC

The recent increase in gasoline price at the Lahore High Court (LHC) challenged Saturday the applicant, Azhar Siddique, in the current fuel price issue.

He said that the government had jacked up oil prices once more. The increase in prices would lead to a further rise in price, the Court said and requested that the increase be annulled.
