Global Energy crisis
Gasoline prices have become the focus of the world's attention after the sharp increases in various countries of the world as a result of the global energy crisis, and what resulted from the Russian-Ukrainian war, which drew a new map and a new reality for the global energy market, a map whose most important features were the insane rise in energy prices, which caused all countries of the world, without exception, to be exposed to severe crises in the energy markets, and thus the occurrence of a state of turmoil and global instability in the global supply chains in the oil and energy industry due to the quantities supplied, in addition to the exacerbation of the global fuel crisis, which affected many countries of the world.
