Pakistanis across the country are searching for petrol in every nook and corner of their city as most petrol pumps are closed today (Thursday).
However, oil marketing companies Pakistan State Oil and Shell had earlier announced they would remain open throughout the country as they are not part of the Pakistan Petroleum Dealers Association (PPDA) strike.
The PPDA had announced a strike a few days earlier, demanding an increase in the dealers’ margin on sale of petroleum products. Complaining about low margins, petroleum dealers are demanding an increase in their margin to 6%.
Shell and PSO took to their social media and websites to announce that their company-operated, company-owned petrol stations will remain open across the country throughout the strike.
Here is the list of PSO petrol pumps that are open today across Pakistan:

Here is the list Shell petrol pumps that are open across Pakistan today:
Meanwhile, taking notice of the closure of petrol pumps, the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) directed petroleum marketing companies to ensure an uninterrupted supply of petroleum goods.
OGRA spokesman said some elements are trying to disrupt the supply of petroleum products but the OGRA enforcement teams will monitor the situation in the field.
Action will be taken against the elements involved in placing obstacles in the supply, the oil regulator said.
