LAHORE: The CNG pumping stations have been closed for 24 hours in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtoonkhaw, reported Tuesday, May 04, 2010.
Under government program ‘Save Energy’, all CNG stations have been closed at 6am this morning for 24 hours.
It was said that this government step aimed at giving more saved CNG to the gas-run power stations.
