Domestic compressed natural gas consumption has reached 25 million cubic meters a day, indicating 31% rise compared to the 19 mcm/d before gasoline was rationed and pump prices increased in mid-November.
State-run National Iranian Oil Products Distribution Company said on Nov. 14 midnight that subsidized gasoline would be sold for 13 cents a liter up to 60 liters per car per month. Additional purchases cost double. However, CNG prices have remained unchanged.
One cubic meter of CNG is sold for 4,600 rials (3.5 cents), at least three times cheaper than gasoline. A liter of subsidized gasoline costs 15,000 rials (13 cents) and non-subsidized fuel 30,000 rials (26 cents).
