A few days away Iran is exposed to the first batch of US economic sanctions, which alarms the Iranian street, which has already emerged in new waves of protest on the rise of fears of a complete collapse of the economy of the country.
The videos, broadcast by Iranian activists through social networking sites, showed a long line of cars in front of a fuel station in the city of Khammam to supply oil, amid fears of high prices crazy.
The heavy demand for petrol stations coincides with a wave of protests in Tehran and most of the country's regions, against the background of the continued collapse of the dollar exchange rate and the continued deterioration of the economy.
With the United States ready to re-impose sanctions on Iran next week, which was lifted under the nuclear deal abandoned by President Donald Trump, the value of the Iranian riyal fell to a record low.
This has raised fears that Iran will suffer long economic hardship and further civil unrest in the country, which is suffering from the mullahs' policy of wasting national resources to achieve its malicious agenda, as well as rampant corruption among the ruling class.
The Iranian riyal fell to new levels on Monday, exceeding 120,000 riyals to the dollar as the Iranians prepared to return the United States to impose the first batch of economic sanctions on August 7.
A few days ago, major markets in major cities witnessed sit-ins and strikes in parallel to a wave of protests, which were met with a violent crackdown by the security forces, without stopping demonstrations.
The Iranian opposition has consistently reported "popular protests over high prices, unemployment and the destruction of the living conditions that have taken place in parts of the Tehran Grand Market, Isfahan and Shiraz as well."
A member of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, Hussein Daih al-Islam, said the demonstrations began Tuesday "in these cities, including the city of Karaj and continued until today and a candidate for expansion."
The Iranian parliament plans to hold a special session to question Hassan Rowhani because of the devaluation of the currency and the faltering economy, and he must come within a month to answer the questions of MPs in an "open session.
