Presiding over the meeting of the National Price Monitoring Committee in Islamabad, he said this reduction in the gap would significantly lower the prices of essential commodities for end users.

The Finance Minister said the difference between wholesale and retail prices of essential items is not only huge but also varies across different cities which require thorough analysis.
