If the government decides to reintroduce the fuel rationing system that ended in 2015 without allowing higher quotas to drivers working with ride-hailing companies, over 700,000 jobs will be endangered, says the deputy manager of Snapp, Iran’s leading online taxi company.
In a talk with the news website Peivast, Jhubin Alaghband said, “If higher quotas are not allocated to drivers with ride-hailing firms, the outcome will be disastrous…More than 700,000 drivers work with online taxi companies across the country registering 2 million plus trips every day.”
Before reintroducing the gasoline rationing system, he said, decision-makers must seriously contemplate about the subsistence of the 700,000 drivers and their families.  “Any decision will impact the lives of over 2.5 million people if you take into account the family members of the drivers,” the Snapp boss said. He explicitly warned about the high joblessness and what higher fuel prices and rationing will do to the already exploding dole queues if hundreds and thousands more join the army of unemployed and job hunters.
