Gas stations have been burned down in Iran by mobs, all supposedly due to gas rationing and increased prices.
While the price of fuel may be the reason, it certainly seems like there’s more to the story than that. Like, Iran has a gas shortage? Maybe conditions there are so tense that the riot was just looking for a reason to happen? Especially considering that the government has been vicious towards dissenters of late. Andrew Sullivan, a conservative who supports regime change both here and in Iran, has more on both.
