Gov't has no plans to increase gas prices

"There is no plan in the government to change the price of gasoline," the government spokesman said.

Ali Bahadori-Jahromi, referring to the gasoline project that is to be implemented in Kish and Qeshm islands, said: "Currently, those who have several cars, receive petrol subsidies many times more than those who have one car, which is an unfair distribution system."

"The plan is to make the distribution system more equitable. Therefore, the pilot project of supplying gasoline at the same rate will be implemented in two islands (Kish and Qeshm) and then its implementation will proceed at the national level using the experiences of the pilot period," the spokesman noted.
