Iran's Gasoline Consumption at All Time High

Gasoline Consumption at All Time HighGasoline Consumption at All Time High

Gasoline consumption between 2011 and 2017 has shot up 50% that (regretfully) is big enough to be registered in the Guinness World Record, the National Iranian Oil Refining and Distribution Company's CEO said.
"Such prohibitive consumption is simply not proportional to the number of cars in the country and is something worthy of pause for thought," Alireza Sadeqabadi was quoted as saying by ISNA.
Iranians used 73 million liters of gasoline per day in 2015, which rose by 8% to reach 80 million liter/d in 2016.
Consumption continued upwards in 2017, when the figure amounted to 88 million liters/d and NIORDC statistics show that since 2018 the level has exceeded 95 ml/d or 1.18 liters per capita.
