what do you expect? with overpopulation, high oil prices, insane inflation throughout the world and not to mention the break neck pace our natural resources are being consumed…
All of these factors have been present for a long time now. The International Oil price increase started in 2003.
Here is a little bit of comparison with International Oil Price Increase, and Increase in Pakistan from Sep 06-Oct 07 (The last time I bought petrol was in october), and a few other price increases (or no increases) I can recall: (I might be forgetting a few numbers, so I apologize in advance)
From Sep 06 - Oct 07 : International Oil price Increase ($ per barrel): $64 - $85
From Sep 06 - Oct 07 : Pakistan Oil Price Increase : (Rs per litre): ~Rs 54 - 54 ?
From Sep 06 - Oct 07: Urban transport lowest Bus fair: Rs 6, Bread (roti) : Rs 3, One serving of “daal”: Rs 16.
