Despite the rise in gasoline production in recent years, promoting the use of environmentally-friendly compressed natural gas instead of eco-unfriendly gasoline is imperative to reduce fuel consumption, secretary-general of the Association of Iranian Refining Companies said.
“As domestic gasoline use is approaching 100 million liters per day, the National Iranian Oil Company that produces about 110 million liters of gasoline on a daily basis will have to import the fuel unless motorists are encouraged to replace gasoline with CNG,” Nasser Ashouri was also quoted as saying by ILNA.
“If the severe competition between gasoline producers and consumers does not stop, self-sufficiency in gasoline production will be a thing of the past and exports will be replaced with imports.”
