Mafi benzine!

 If the rumour mill is right, Lebanon should be running out of petrol right about now. Drivers were panic buying on Thursday night and throughout Friday, with huge tailbacks at those gas stations that remained open. It's apparently all due to political wrangling to lower taxes on petrol (or 'benzine' as it's called here), rather than a physical lack of supply. Sadly it hasn't made a dent on the constant congestion that plagues this city.
