Suigas is the basic need of every house to meet the eatable desires of huma. From the decade the Pakistani domestic consumers of Gas are facing shortage of suigas in winters. But now the same situation is faced by people even in summers. There are many localities have scarcity of suigas. The gas timming is 6am to 9am and 12 noon to 10 night. After 10 the gas pressure reduces. The house holders try to manage the food before the deadloads. People who works late at night do not have the fresh foods ,they often purchase chapati from market and have cold meals.

The situation worsened because Pakistan depends on natural gas for energy. The suigas blackout occur because of wider industrial consumption of gas and then the left over gas is supplied in houses which is not enough. While talking on this issue the concerned Minister stated that ;

       Due to in-sufficient supply of gas they can not provide 24/7 gas

People use LPG cylinders to cook food and to fullfil other needs ,they cant afford the gas bills and LPG cylinders altogether. The high billing of suigas burdenised the citizens because of budget crashing situation.

The Sui Northern Gas Pipeline Limited (SNGPL)and Sui Southern Gas Company Limited (SSGPL) must take some long lasting remedy for gas crises in Pakistan .
