Skyrocketing gasoline prices disrupt the transportation sector

Abou Firas organizes the passengers’ queues in coincidence with attempts applied by opposition forces to confront the authority. The transport sector is managed here by individual initiatives, and the soaring fuel prices eliminate the cash in the pockets of citizens.

The void has filled the spaces of protest, unlike the walls separating the rulers and the people. The chants were abbreviated by the opposing writings.

Queues are back. The gasoline crisis unite these crowds, but only in front of gas stations, neither in front of the homes of those responsible for the crisis, nor in front the official headquarters…

The fuel bills are soaring, and walking towards an inevitable disaster has become the only fate for Lebanese. The path of the catastrophe is not paved until now, neither with solutions nor with promises.
