Fuel distributors have let it be known that we are heading for a total outage of gasoline on the market. They are therefore asking the Minister of Energy and Water Resources to implement as quickly as possible, or even on Monday, the decisions taken this week during a meeting which took place at the Presidential Palace in Baabda.
As a reminder, they thus consist in raising the parity used to subsidize fuel from 1507 LL / USD to 3900 LL / USD. These subsidies will always be granted by the Banque du Liban in return for an acknowledgment of debt on the part of the state.
In addition, the Lebanese authorities have denied certain rumors indicating the arrival in Lebanon of 2 tankers from Iran following the speech yesterday by Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah. They also indicate that they have not received any request to import fuel from this country.
