260 Gas station vs 6 Million citizen - Fuel Crisis in Jordan

Two hundred and sixty gas station owner were able to impose their wishes on the government while the last found itself compelled to switch back to the monthly pricing system although they were about to install the weekly pricing system in favor of the six million citizen or we prefer to think like that.


For better coverage maybe you want to check Alghad or Jordantimes but my question is, do we have a government that is strong enough to protect the 6 million citizen from the greedy-businessmen starting from gas station business ending with shawerma?

  1. I think the monthly pricing system is much better; more fairness and less nation-wide drama !

  2. I'm not sure if it's fair comparing it with weekly one or bi-monthly one.

    anyway, we shouldn't focus on gas price only but the whole market should be repriced every month based on the new gas price, after all we don't eat or drink gas.
