Proper management vital for CNG shortage in winter
KARACHI: The better scheduling is vital to cope with the potential shortage of the CNG during upcoming winter season, Geo News reported Sunday.
CNG Station Owners Association Chairman Malik Khuda Bux said there are at the moment at least 2.4 million CNG-fuelled vehicles in the country, which has given rise to the saving of petrol imports worth $2 to 4 billion.
Malik Khuda Bux said the national forex reserves are not such that could be burdened with heavy fuel imports with CNG pumping station closed.
Malik further said the crude oil price goes up in winter season in international market; under the circumstances, increased petrol price and its imports would be hard nut to crack for both government and people
