The Rs30 per litre price hike has got their creative juices going.

All it took was an announcement of a massive hike in the price of petrol products by the sitting government for meme-makers on Twitter to unite over their shared anguish.

On Thursday night, Finance Minister Miftah Ismail announced that the federal government had decided to raise the prices of petroleum products by Rs30 per litre, starting from today (Friday). Ever since his announcement, many people have taken to Twitter to discuss the sudden price hike but most importantly, to share their memes.
