Iran accounts for 70% of gasoline exports to Afghanistan, the head of the Iran-Afghanistan Chamber of Commerce said.
“Close to 2.5 million liters of gasoline are burnt in Afghanistan daily, of which 1.7 million liters are imported from Iran through Dogharoun border crossing,” Mirajan Soleimankhalil was also quoted as saying by IRNA.
Imam Khomeini Shazand Oil Refinery in Arak County, Markazi Province, sells around 1.5 million liters of the fuel to the neighboring state, he added.
The official noted that Afghanistan’s daily diesel requirement is estimated to be around 3.5 million liters, but less than 1 million liters per day are imported from Iran, which explains why the fuel is more expensive than gasoline.
