Where will the Diesel Crisis Lead Egypt?

EPC | 01 Mar 2013

The alert deals with the repeated diesel shortage in Egypt, which led to traffic jams on main roads and entrances of gas stations all over the country. The alert touches upon reasons behind this shortage, reiterating that the continuation of this shortage lays social burdens on citizens, which increases their sense of the government’s failures. If these shortages continue, the alert says it is likely Egypt may face price hikes, which will provide opposition forces with political tools to be used to enlist people against the government.
