Power cuts
I live in Mar Mikhail and we as others are experiencing frequent power cuts. What makes us different from the rest is the fact that we had electricity 24/7 and no one thought that we will one day reach a point where we will be forced to get "Ishtirak". Currently we only have 2 suppliers in the neighborhood and both suppliers don't have spots so each household is getting 5 amperes if lucky. 5 ampers does not power anything!

Gas Crisis in Lebanon
Lebanon is going through a crisis where there is a shortage of fuel. People lined up in queues for more than a hour only yo be able to fill a quarter of their cars' tanks.

In addition to that, there is an increase in the price of fuel, while having no reliable public transportation in the country
