Informed sources revealed new financial measures taken by the local authorities in the Marib Governorate, regarding the sale of gas to the governorates under the control of the Houthi rebels.
The sources said that the Marib authorities decided to receive the value of the gas and oil sold to the governorates under the control of the militia, from the old local currency.
According to the sources, the authorities will start implementing this decision from today, Tuesday, stressing that no gas or oil trailer will be filled until after the delivery of its price from the old currency.
The sources pointed out that this decision comes within the policies of maintaining the position of the Yemeni riyal in the oil- and gas-rich governorate.
It is worth noting that the Yemeni riyal is witnessing the largest collapse in its history, which has compounded the economic crisis in Yemen.
