Great idea as it's only fair for the Egyptian people in need to provide subsidies for goods in need.

Why should the government subsidise petrol for the people who don't care about others? Egypt needs to get out of the crisis with drastic measures, to be able to move forwards. All hummer drivers and big 8 cylinder drivers can afford a big car, so they can pay for petrol the real price!!!

A cut in subsidies will bring Egypt forward on the right path to be independent from the western world, a burden we all should be able to help with.
