The city of Taiz is witnessing a stifling crisis in oil derivatives due to the closure of gas stations.

 A local source told NewsYemen that gas stations were closed today, after the price of a liter of oil reached 700 riyals due to the continued collapse of the currency and the high costs of transportation;  While petroleum and diesel were available on the black market, the price of a liter reached 850 riyals.

 On the other hand, drivers of trucks transporting goods from Aden Governorate to the city of Taiz announced their strike after stopping in the market of the Tur Al Baha District of Lahj Governorate.

According to the drivers, their strike is due to the suspension of the maintenance of Al-Abd, in addition to the royalties imposed on them by the army points connecting to Taiz.
