Why compare only oil prices? Why not compare per capita income, economy & other factors?
Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that the price of oil in the world has gone up by 100% in the last few days while in Pakistan we have increased it by only 22% and the price of petrol and diesel in Pakistan is 19 except 19 oil producing countries. Addressing a function in Islamabad, he said that the price of wheat in the world has increased by 37%, in Pakistan it has been increased by only 12%, the price of sugar has been increased by 40% and in Pakistan it has been increased by only 21%.
They compare the prices of products and other commodities with other countries, but their economies are silent on many issues, including currency, per capita income, gross national income, citing petroleum products. Refer to the country While according to the claims of Prime Minister Imran Khan and the cabinet, the prices of diesel and petrol are much higher than Pakistan. Finance Minister Shaukat Tareen has compared Pakistan with Britain. He said that Britain has more inflation than Pakistan. In comparison, prices in the UK have risen by 31%, but he did not tell the nation what the per capita income in the UK is. What is the value of the British pound against the US dollar?

In this regard, the editor of “Urdupoint” Mian Muhammad Nadeem says that at present the price of oil in the world market is ڈالر 70 per barrel. In Pakistan, the depreciation of the rupee against the dollar is making crude oil imports more expensive.
He said that the government has not taken any steps to control the vehicles. Due to the sea of vehicles, the country’s import bill for oil has been steadily increasing and the measures taken for air pollution have not been effective because We are producing as many greenhouse gases as thousands of factories from vehicle fumes, he said. On the other hand, at the import stage, the government collects special taxes in the form of customs duty and advance tax.
