Iran halts crude oil sales to U.K., French, there are other countries that will buy Iranian oil.
Whatever the size or shape the vehicle, Produce and ‘Drive’ vehicles with high MPG, are very reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money. Consider using ‘other’ forms of transportation or car pool to lower your cost for transportation.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!
