The government is considering a proposal to pay KD 20 a month for each Kuwaiti employee as an allowance to combat the effects of the gasoline price hike, which comes into effect on September 1. The proposal was made by a number of lawmakers among others that include giving coupons or free gasoline liters to Kuwaitis through their ration cards. The government reportedly rejected the other proposal out of fear that they might lead to manipulation and the creation of a black market for subsidized gasoline.
