So the shock has been delayed (again).However, those 1.7m cars (20% ?) running on CNG, are they entitled to 60L as well and if not, how much more do they have to pay (per km) compared to subsidized gas ?-Weapons of Mass DISTRACTION
The 60 liter ration for private vehicles also applies to "dual fuel" cars, those capable of running on LPG.The monthly ration for all types of vehicles are as follow:Private vehicles, single or dual fuel types: 60LMotorcycles: 25LTaxis (gasoline): 500LTaxis (dual fuel): 200LAgency and private vehicles carrying passengers: 200L
What was the quota introduced (and actually implemented) in 2007? What is the total saving in Mega Litres expected compared to the 2007 quota?
What's the point subsidizing CNG cars (or LPG cars for the sake of argument), considering that since a few years back all new Iranian cars were required by law to be "dual fuel" (apparently totaling 1.7 million by now) ?!!...unless CNG/LPG isn't that much cheaper than unsubsidized gas anymore and/or there aren't enough CNG/LPG filling stations yet.-WMD
Both, not much savings in its production and still not many filling stations for it.
So, how much do Iranians have to pay for the CNG/LPG energy equivalent of 1 Liter gasoline?Last year I read somewhere there were some 1000 CNG/LPG filling stations already against what... 10.000 gas stations?-WMD
Just spoke with a relative in Iran and he told me that currently CNG is about one fourth the price of normal gasoline. He does not know what the new price will be next month but it will continue to be cheaper. I visited 2 months ago and there are CNG stations going up everywhere.
It appears the Iranian government had the clarity of mind a decade or more ago to allocate a substantial part of the country's gas reserves to domestic consumption (power stations, car CNG) in anticipation of future problems with gas exports: denial of LNG technology by the west (no export by tankers) and deterioration of the security situation in existing and projected pipeline transfer regions (Afghanistan, Baluchistan, Turkish Kurdistan).-WMD
...and in this way free up dwindling oil reserves for (tanker) export, in theory at least.-WMD
