Gasoline Rationing Can Help Combat Fuel Smuggling

Reviving the gasoline rationing system can help combat the menace of fuel smuggling, a member of Iran's Oil Product Exporters' Association said.
"The country's gasoline consumption amounts to 100 million liters per day, of which 20 million liters are smuggled to neighboring states," Hassan Khosrojerdi was also quoted as saying by Tasnim News Agency on Wednesday. 
According to the official, the substantial discrepancy between fuel prices in Iran, at 7 cents, and those in neighboring countries, at 75 cents, have turned fuel smuggling into a lucrative business. Even the government’s anti-smuggling regulations, such as heavy fines, have done little to curb the illegal fuel trade.
