TEHRAN- Iran imported 5.7 million liters per day of gasoline during the three-month period from the beginning of current Iranian calendar year (March 21), which was 3.3 million liters less than the planned amount for this period, the managing director of National Iranian Oil Products Distribution Company (NIOPDC) announced.

Mohammadreza Mousavikhah also said: “We are always trying to reduce the amount of gasoline imports to zero”, Shana news agency reported.
