Recent Goings-On

The government lowered the price of gas at its stations by about 50% the other day, which is nice to see since for a while there I was convinced that Benin couldn't be influenced by the economic realities of the rest of the world. Other nearby countries have apparently not yet lowered their official prices so all the smuggled gas that was previously sold on the side of the road has been taken elsewhere and all the gas stations have incredibly long lines, when only a week ago they almost never had any customers.
