|Gasoline consumption in Iran hits all-time record high||
TEHRAN – Gasoline consumption hit all-time record high of 100.7 million liters in Iran on April 1.
Iranians consumed around 1.5 billion liters of gasoline during March 18-April 4, according to the Mehr News Agency.
Gasoline consumption was 70 million liters per day on the average in the past Iranian calendar year, which ended on March 20.
On March 5, the director of the National Iranian Oil Products Distribution Company said Iran will triple gasoline imports in the current Iranian calendar year as domestic petrochemical units have stopped gasoline production.
Mostafa Kashkouli added that 10-11 million liters of gasoline will be imported per day in the current year.
Over the past three years, 8-10 million liters of gasoline has been produced per day by the domestic petrochemical units, Kashkouli noted.
