After the 5000 drop in gas prices in Lebanon only a month ago or even less, the prices have increased by 1700 LL already. 600 LL the 1st week, 800 LL the 2nd week and today a 300 LL increase.
3 weeks from now, we will be back to the original crisis. Hourray!
Enjoy the things you can buy for 5000LL ( 3400 LL now) before it’s too late.
We’ve been witnessing people revolting in neighboring countries for the same reasons, with the sole difference is that we are democratically voting for the people screwing us up.
nice picture. where is it taken from?
Here’s the source but it doesnt say where.
You’re putting a lot of ugly images of Lebanon lately.
You’ll give wrong impression for people who’ve never been here. Leave that task to the international media, they are doing good at their job so far!
Well I am putting an image that reflects the situation .. 7ale bil well 🙂
No worries though, I will make it up in the upcoming posts I got prepared.
It’s like that “frog in boiling water analogy” that Al Gore likes to use. Yeah, the price decrease was just a temporary thing.
JD, this gas station is on the intersection near (or exactly facing) Mar Mikhael church in the Galery Semaan area.
this area has always been a war zone… (i use to live there, trust me)
Najib, did the lebanese citizens REALLY believe that the prices won’t go up again??? PLLEAAASEEE anyone who has been lebanese for more than 3 years knows that eveything in this country in total BS. This is why i’m living verrryyyyy far awayyyyy and i don’t regret it not one bit!!!
