Trying to gain a firsthand perspective on the problems of gas shortages in Baghdad, AIB went with a taxi driver, Hussein Rudha, to visit a large gas station in southern Baghdad, near the Karrada neighborhood. Hussein provides us his perspective on the gas shortages, as well as a few stories he witnessed on this expressway and other around Baghdad. Along with Hussein’s words we’ve provided you images of the gas station and armored American vehicles patrolling the area, we hope this will provide a small sense of understanding into one of the constant frustrations facing Iraqis daily.
