Tehran, IRAN: Iranians block a highway by setting fire in front of a petrol station today in the northwest of Tehran, after the government announced it was going to begin rationing fuel. Since the announcement of the rationing plan yesterday, which allows for only 100 liters (26 gallons) of petrol per month for private cars, long queues started appearing at fuel pumps not only in Tehran but also in the countryside.
