Egypt will require new cars to operate on natural gas before they receive a license, President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi said, stressing the move will help reduce middle-income families’ fuel bills by half.

El-Sisi, speaking Sunday during the inauguration of a national project, said converting 1 million vehicles in Egypt to natural gas will cost a total of about 8 billion pounds ($5.3 million).
