The rising prices ignited rage among the general population of UAE, with people commenting and condemning the rising fuel prices. 

One of the UAE nationals commented, “This seriously needs to stop. You can’t rush people into increasing 2 AED in less than a year per litre. Absolute madness… The electric vehicle will still need time to catch up!.” 

Meanwhile, another resident wrote, “It must be an April fool’s message. Cant be real. I’m sure we don’t want to be No. 1 in the highest fuel category in GCC.”
