Cheap Gas in Iran

Gas is $0.35/gallon in Iran.

The source for that comes from this article. Curiously the article also suggests that the recent crash in crude oil prices is an economic attack on Iran from Saudi Arabia. Iran depends heavily on the profit from oil exports to subsidize it's economy (including it's gas). With a drop in oil prices, the pressure on the government is ramped up. Presumably this is because the government is being so belligerent regarding nuclear technology and generally making Saudi Arabia nervous.
