2Since the early hours of the morning hundreds of Palestinian cars have been riding over to Israeli gas stations because the stations in their towns no longer had any.

Tazpit News Agency has learned that the cities of Ramallah, Shchem and Hebron are dry of gas because they have neglected to pay their bills to the fuel providing companies. As a result the Arabs have been flocking to Israeli owned gas stations to fill up. Gas can still be found in Jenin and Jericho.

There were long lines in front of stations in the Israeli towns of Kdumim, Karney Shomron and Kiryat Arba. Many came with cans to fill and take back with them. Eventually traffic became so jammed that the IDF had to get involved and blocked the road leading from the PA to Kdumim.

Incidentally, the PA also owes close to 1 billion NIS to the Israeli electric company. Israel’s Government is still searching for creative solutions to enable the PA to pay their debts.
