Official Iranian sources say the latest 15-day statistics report indicates that gasoline consumption has risen to 100 million litres per day.

On April 1, the consumption even reached an unprecedented 1.7 million litres per day.

Annual reports indicate that in 2012, average gasoline consumption was 63.5 million litres per day.

The rise in the gasoline consumption is happening as Parliament and the executive branch discuss an increase in the price of gasoline.

The Mehr News Agency reports that a rise in the price of gasoline has been postponed until next month.
