Last Update:

Government had to back more than once from plans to increase prices. Legal dispute whether parliament's approval needed to increase prices or if the government can change them per administrative decree.

In fall 2010 Bahrain proposed applying a common price structure for petrol and diesel in the six nation Gulf Cooperation Council to avoid smuggling.
