Doctors can now show their cards to fill up their car tanks with gasoline

The Order of Physicians announced in a statement that amid the fuel crisis that citizens are suffering from, physicians can now present the order’s card at any gas station in order to fill their car tanks with gasoline.

Car queues are still waiting in front of gas stations that are opened for customers, in a scene that has become familiar on Lebanon’s roads, which have been crowded since the early morning, and in some areas have turned into a parking garage.

The crisis was partially resolved on Monday, as the oil companies distributed quantities of gasoline into the markets, but the panic among citizens pushes them to fill up their cars whenever a small amount of gasoline is emptied, fearing that it will be completely cut off.

The Association of Petroleum Importing companies (APIC) had confirmed that the companies have distributed fuel, after the Central Bank approved opening credits, and they will continue distributing further quantities of gasoline estimated at 12 million liters.
