Gas prices

For the first time since I've arrived in Doha almost 5 years ago the Government has raised the gas prices. It was a massive increase, around 30 to 40%! Oh well I guess the government-subsidized cheap gas wasn't going to last forever.

It's really brutal now, supreme is now $0.27 a litre! I at least take some small consolation that I usually use premium at $0.23 a litre. Even then though it costs at least $9 for me to fill my car.
