Refiners Call for Prudent Gasoline ConsumptionRefiners Call for Prudent Gasoline Consumption

The severe competition between gasoline producers and consumers is excessively raising output, because of which consumption of the strategic fuel should be curbed, the secretary-general of the Association of Iranian Refining Companies said on Saturday.
“To do so, automakers should be required to manufacture fuel-efficient cars to help the country make better use of the valuable commodity,” Nasser Ashouri was also quoted as saying by Shana.
According to the official, since the beginning of the current fiscal year (started March 21), Iran’s daily gasoline consumption has rocketed to 80 million liters and is predicted to hit a massive 96 million liters by the yearend (March 2019).
Iranian refining plants produce nearly 60 million liters of gasoline per day, but the country has to import 15-20 million liters a day to meet domestic demand.
