“Gas stations in Lebanon have turned into carpet washers,” a station owner told Sawt Beirut International (SBI) reporter Sara Chehadeh.
“Each one of us likes to keep their business operational and at this stage, I can do so in the carwash, not by selling gasoline,” he said.
“After we finish selling the available quantity of fuel we have, what will we do?” he asked, adding “we want to work in order to secure the station’s expenses, such as electricity (bills), wages of employees, etc.”
The gas station owner also noted that selling gasoline is now making low profits, saying “the quantity is very small and is not sufficient for the continuity of the business.”
“May God help us withstand this situation,” he said.
