Islamabad, September 24, 2019 (PPI-OT): In a Gallup and Gilani Pakistan National Survey conducted in the year 2008, respondents were asked “In your view, what is the cause of CNG crisis?” In response, 27% blamed it on the shortage of gas, 16% said it is because of excessive domestic usage, 15% claimed it is because of increase in industrial usage and 35% blamed it on the increasing number of CNG stations.

In 2017, 10% blamed it on the shortage of gas, 21% said it is because of excessive domestic usage, 33% claimed it is because of increase in industrial usage and 36% blamed it on the increasing number of CNG stations.
