Where on earth is the petrol?

Here's one answer to the question of how the hell the UAE has a fuel shortage in The National. It would seem that subsidised petrol prices are causing suppliers problems. I don't think people will be terribly amused if prices go up, but then, their patience with fuel shortages will only last so long. 

The love affair with the car in the UAE is not just about laziness, it's about necessity.  It's already too hot to walk anything but the tiniest of distances and there's no way the public transport system will be able to pick up the slack if people have to leave their cars at home.
