A bill to enable a customer to use the same automatic gas card at any gas station was approved for a first reading by the Knesset Economic Affairs Committee on Wednesday. The bill, sponsored by MK Shai Hermesh (Kadima), is intended to improve competition between the gasoline providers. According to the explanation that accompanied the bill, "the gas market is controlled by the four big gas companies and barely allows for competition and the emergence of more gas stations and smaller companies."
