There will be no extra fuel for the Nowruz or New Year holiday (beginning March 21).

President of the National Headquarters for Fuel and Transportation Alireza Feyzibakhsh said it would be preferable to spend the $ 13 million subsidy - previously allocated to holiday fuel quota - for improving healthcare. He added that providing “holiday fuel quota” runs contrary to government’s policy to reduce fuel consumption and promote environmental protection,” ISNA reported.
