Turkmenistan abolishes distribution of free gasoline for car owners
Beginning 1 July 2014, Turkmenistan will discontinue providing owners of cars and motorcycles with free gasoline of all grades and diesel fuel. As the Turkmenistan.ru correspondent reports from Ashgabat, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov signed a decree to this effect.
According to the decree, this measure aims to ensure the sustained development of the national economy, efficient use of petroleum products and better regulation of sales of petroleum products in the domestic market.
The system of free gasoline or diesel fuel distribution for car owners was introduced in February 2008. The free quota amounted to 120 liters of fuel per month per car owner.
