Iran Stops gas only Car Making

Iran has announced that it will stop producing purely gas driven cars and produce more dual-fuel vehicles, which also run on gas. They will stop production in a little over two weeks time. They say it is not clear whether Iran can produce enough gas or supply it to gas stations. The government introduced gas rationing last week, a policy which provoked widespread anger and violence. The move was an attempt to reduce the large subsidies the government spends on gas and to limit the country's rising gas consumption.
