ISLAMABAD: Petrol prices in the country are to remain unchanged for the month of September, the Finance Division said in a statement issued Monday.

The price of petrol will be maintained at Rs 103.97 a litre, whereas the per-litre prices of diesel, kerosene oil, and light diesel will remain at Rs106.46, Rs65.29, and Rs62.86, respectively.

The development comes after sources informed Geo News that Prime Minister Imran Khan had rejected the proposal to hike the petroleum prices.

Chairing a high-level meeting, PM Imran said people were already facing miseries due to the torrential rains that had wreaked havoc across Pakistan. The storms have so far killed more than 100 people.

"We cannot increase petroleum prices" and add to the woes of the people, the premier added.
