Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct.6
By Fatih Karimov - Trend: Iran's gasoline consumption stood at 490.9 million liters during the week ended on October 3, indicating a significant 26.9 million liters decline in comparison with its preceding week.
The lowest and the highest consumption were registered on October 3 and October 2, respectively, with 64.2 million liters and 78.1 million liters of consumption, Iran's ISNA news agency reported on October 6.
The country's gasoline output is currently around 60 million liters, so it needs to import the rest.
Shahrokh Khosravani, deputy director of National Iranian Oil Refining and Distribution Company (NIORDC) earlier said that the Islamic Republic has decreased gasoline imports to 4.7 million liters per day from the forecasted figure of 10 million liters, as a result of appropriate storage and consumption management.
