Event

Fuel carrier associations have called for a nationwide general strike on Wednesday, September 18, to denounce currency regulations in the fuel sector. Gas stations, truck drivers, and fuel transportation companies are expected to participate to in the strike. Gas stations across the country are expected to be closed throughout the day on Wednesday. 

Associated protests are possible across the country. Transportation disruptions, along with fuel shortages, are to be expected should the strike proceed as planned.

Context

Fuel in Lebanon is bought in US Dollars and currently sold in Lebanese lira, though the country is currently facing a dwindling foreign currency reserve, affecting the value of the lira.

Advice

Individuals in Lebanon are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all public demonstrations as a precaution, and anticipate localized transportation and business disruptions, and a heightened security presence near all protest sites. In the event of fuel shortages, individuals are advised to fill up their vehicles whenever gasoline is available, to ensure sufficient fuel reserves before all long journeys, and to expect longer waiting times at gas stations.
