: It has become a familiar sight across Pakistan in recent weeks: Long lines of cars and minibuses snaking for hundreds of yards as their frustrated drivers wait to fill up their tanks with natural gas.
NATURAL REMEDY: The government began promoting the use of compressed natural gas in private vehicles nearly a decade ago to reduce oil imports and instead rely on domestic natural gas reserves.
IN REVERSE: Pakistan's gas supplies can't support the demand, so officials are trying to reverse the policy to wean drivers back onto gasoline.
