Many of us go on vacation during the High Holy Days. If you will be driving, pay attention to the fuel gauge.The Energy Ministry’s fuel station registrar records 1,199 gas filling stations. We would expect to find the majority of stations in rural or open areas, where there is more need for vehicular travel between places, since distances are greater, but it turns out that gas stations are concentrated in major cities. For example, 32% of the country’s residents are concentrated in the eight cities with a population of more than 200,000 residents and 28% of the gas stations are located in these cities – more than we might expect.
