Pakistanis are turning to crisis-related humour on social media in response to a significant price rise of Rs35 on gasoline.
The coalition government launched the fuel bomb on Sunday, and with the most recent revision, the price of gasoline has increased to Rs249.80 per litre and the price of high-speed diesel has increased to Rs262.8 while the nation of over 220 million reels from spiralling inflation.
The majority of people are trying to plan strategies to deal with the extraordinary inflation without seeing much or any growth in their earnings.
Social media users came together on Twitter to share their suffering following the recent news of a significant increase in the price of gasoline goods. Memes are a common way that social media platforms, particularly Twitter, deal with unpleasant situations.
