Gasoline Use Down 30% Gasoline Use Down 30%

Gasoline consumption in Iran in the first seven months of the current Persian calendar year (March 20-Oct 2020) declined 30% compared to the same period last year.
While motorists used 97 million liters per day of gasoline from March to October 2019, the figure decreased to 75 million liters a day in the first seven months of this year, IRNA reported.
The plunge is said to be due the rationing of the fuel last fall, increase in the use of CNG and travel warnings/restrictions after the coronavirus struck in February.
Following the government’s decision to raise prices at the pumps last November (consumption then was 110 million liters per day), fuel sales declined to 95 ml/d.
