GAS RATIONING START IN IRAN
GAS RATIONING START IN IRAN
An Iranian taxi driver pushes his car as others wait in line for gasoline in Tehran on June 27, 2007. Iran, the world's second-largest oil exporter, will begin gasoline rationing for private vehicles yesterday to rein in consumption and cut expensive gas imports. Iranians set fire to a dozen gas stations in the capital early Wednesday and smashed windows, angered by the sudden start of fuel rationing, a step that threatens to further increase the unpopularity of hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
