Just saw this headline at the BBC: Iran calls halt to petrol imports

I have no evidence for this statement, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Iran was somehow readying itself and the public for potential punitive sanctions by the West, which may include disruptions to imported, refined oil.

For all the oil Iran produces and exports its refining capacity is sub-par, making them dependent on imported oil (yeah, it’s wierd I know). Just a thought.

Apparently the FP Passport and I think alike.
