According to Geo.tv
"ISLAMABAD: Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) has sent a summary proposing a 20 to 30 per cent cut in prices of petroleum products to the Ministry of Petroleum.
The summary states that the rate of petroleum products could be slashed by 20 to 30 per cent in the country following a decline in the international oil prices.
The Petroleum Ministry will review the OGRA’s summary before forwarding it to the Ministry of Finance. Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani will grant final approval to the summary.
The final decision in this regard will be announced tomorrow."
So Little bit happy, after having reduced petroleum prices everywhere our pakistani government have finally decided to lose prices also but let's see what happens as the summary is yet to be signed by our Prime minister.

The new Toyota Avensis is available in two bodystyles - sedan and wagon.
The new Toyota Avensis has the 2700mm wheelbase, same as of the current ongoing second generation model, but according to Toyota, they claim it as a new platform or perhaps an advanced old one which they think should have the new term. If we compare this D-segment sedan with Camry’s 2776mm wheelbase we will come to know it's slightly shorter than it. But that's the way European like their D-segment sedans so it's quite normal for them.
Toyota Avensis is available in wide range of engines, starting from 1.6L Petrol to a 2.2L D-4D Turbo diesel. ALL The petrol engines come preloaded with their new Valvematic technology which incorporates continuously variable valve lift together with VVT-i valve timing control.
The Engines, 1.6L, 1.8L and 2.0L Valvematic engines produce 132hp with 160Nm of torque, 147hp with 180Nm of torque and 152hp with 196Nm of torque respectively. The oil burners range from a 2.0 liter and two 2.2 liter D-4D engines.These engines have a new piezo injectors and increased common rail pressure at 2,000 bar. The base 2.0 liter diesel makes/produces 126hp and 310Nm of torque between 1800 and 2400rpm. The more sedate of the two 2.2 liter engines is the D-4D 150 which produces 150hp and 340Nm of torque between 2200 and 2800rpm. The most powerful engine is the 2.2 D-4D 180, featuring 177hp and a massive 400Nm of torque between 2000 to 2800rpm. The D-4D 150 also comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission, a first for a Toyota diesel passenger car.
The 1.6L Engine comes up with a 6 speed manual while the 1.8 and 2.0 models also have an option for the Multidrive
S CVT transmission which succeeds the Super CVT-i transmission.
