Iran: Rationing Gasoline

Yek Livan Chaye Dagh criticised government's decision to halt gasoline imports from September 23 and start rationing gasoline supplies to motorists because of budget constraints. The blogger says government wants to reduce about 42 percent gasoline offer in Iranian market. According to the blogger this means more people will need use public transport. But do we have such public means available? The blogger adds such an important cut in gasoline offer will make price rise sharply. The blogger believes even taxi men will prefer to sell their gasoline at a very high price in the black market rather to drive whole day (Persian).
