Azerbaijan, Baku, Jun.1/ Trend F.Karimov/
Iran's average gasoline consumption hit 65.02 million liters per day during the week which ended on May 24, the Tasnim News Agency reported.
The total gasoline consumption reached 455.2 million liters during the week.
Diesel fuel consumption amounted to 104.8 million liters during the mentioned period of time.
Furnace oil and kerosene consumptions stood at 47.3 million liters and 28.4 million liters, respectively.
Iran's average gasoline consumption was around 65 million liters per day in the previous calendar year which ended on March 20.
Managing director of the National Iranian Oil Products Distribution Company Mostafa Kashkouli has said that "not implementing the second phase of the subsidy reform plan would raise Iran's gasoline consumption to 70 million litres per day which is eight per cent more than the current figure".
Implementing the second phase of the reform plan would also prevent the country's gas oil consumption rising by seven million litres per day, the IRNA News Agency quoted Kashkouli as saying.
Currently 22 million litres of gasoline conforming to Euro 4 and Euro 5 standards is being produced in the country.
Officials say the country's total gasoline production capacity would reach 70 million litres per day by the end of the next Iranian calendar year (March 20, 2014).
