One person was killed in the Iranian city of Sirjan during protests that erupted after Iranian regime’s Hassan Rouhani imposed gasoline rationing and price hikes of at least 50 percent, Iranian ISNA news agency reported on Saturday.

The regime announced on Friday that the price of a litre of regular gasoline would increase to 15,000 rials ($0.13 cents) from 10,000 rials and the monthly ration for each private car was set at 60 litres. Additional purchases would cost 30,000 rials per litre.

Washington’s policy of applying “maximum pressure” on Iranian regime has severely impacted the country’s oil revenues, sent its economy into recession and devalued its national currency.

The protests continued on Saturday, local media reported. Members of the public also posted videos on social media that showed police firing teargas to disperse protesters in several cities across Iran, where many people see cheap gasoline as a national right.
