The President of the Republic, General Michel Aoun followed the evolution of the situation on the fuel shortage front. He therefore called on the energy ministry and the various stakeholders to take structural measures to combat “a fabricated crisis” and end the suffering of the population.
Also, the head of state addressed the outgoing Minister of the Interior, Mohammed Faim to put an end to the illegal storage of fuels and to make it available to the population until the current crisis is resolved by now. 48 hours.
In this context, the Interior Ministry could prohibit petrol stations from refueling motorcycles accused of refueling and then emptying the contents of their tanks to sell them on the black market.
For the time being, however, no meeting between the outgoing Minister of Energy Raymond Ghajar and the gasoline distributors is scheduled to update the price list taking into account the parity at 3,900 LL / USD.
