Iranian gasoline imports rose by more than 70 percent in November, despite the international economic sanctions levied on the Iranian economy, according to Reuters.

Big oil coporations were banned to sell their production to Iran, which increase the imports costs, and made it hard to meet the domestic demand.

The figures for November shows that Iran has found ways to manipulate Washigton efforts to block all the fuel imports channels to Iran, but annual figures are nevertheless declining drastically.

Iran imported 28,869 barrels in November, compared to 16,744 in October.
