Petrol stations in the UAE are given until April 1 to comply with the government directive to sell fuel by the litre instead of gallon as a unit of measurement.
"January is the starting point and they are given four months to make the shift," Dr Rashid Ahmad bin Fahad, Chairman of Emirates Authority for Standardisation and Metrology, (Esma) told Emirates Business. "They should be able to do it before April 1. Four months is more than a reasonable period of time."
