#4

They are liars else why they entering in to contract with Iran to buy gas. We have also lot of petroleum reserves but who gona take it out or who gona have kickbacks.


#5

#6

Its 40Rs per Kg now it will be 53Rs per Kg? Why are they increasing the rates on monthly basis?It is enough man.. they should stop this bullshit before its too late,gas has to do nothing with petrol or diesel... this gov is doing nothing but putting the damn taxes on everything.Shameless dead souls.


#7

do u know we had a contract with iran for not digging in balochistan if we dig that mean a war with iran.

balochistan land is lower than iran so if we dig in balochistan we can get oil and gas reserves but

due to the contact we can't do anything and this contract was done against some big amount for the

welfare of the pakistan.


#8

Where is that amount gone?perhaps in thier pockets,they should really concentrate on happenings in Pakistan? its getting late.

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, who also holds the portfolio of petroleum minister said the government was forced to increase the gas tariff following compulsion by the OGRA Ordinance 2002 and agreements signed with the Sui Southern Gas Company Limited (SSGCL) and the Sui Northern Gas Pipeline Limited (SNGPL) that bound the government to give these gas utilities a proper rate of return on their assets.

#15

just heard on geo, i think wrong prices were quoted by gas ministry..


#16

Govt. annouced raise utpo Rs. 4.30 plus taxes not Rs. 13/- good news.


#17

guys this is nothing ... expect all these prices to double within a year.

soo in mid 2009, you guys might be paying 100+rs for 1kg of gas.

All the money is going to a good cause, i.e. War in Iraq and War in Afghanistan. So feel satisfied that your money isn't being wasted.

also, all your money is going to help in rising more sky-scrapers in Dubai, so thats also a help to humanity. So take it easy guys.

Petrol prices went from 53rs/liter to 75rs/liter in less then 9 months, and this is gonna keep going higher UNTIL

we say #$%# YOU to the oil-production nations who are increasing prices on daily basis (caz they know we're dependent on 'em)...

within 5-10 years, majority of the nations are gonna turn to alternative energy sources, then OIL prices will drop a bit, but by then, nobody will be interested in the environment-polluting fossil fuels.
